Cyber scams are just a common thing and many movies and games fall prey to that. However, the news is that now the famous Star Wars: The Old Republic game has also fallen prey to scammers. A security vendor reported that he found phishing attempts on gamers playing this game. The developers will now subject the prospective victims to various verification checks. In this phishing scam, the players are asked to enter their credentials several times. The fake login lacks the characters “the trial reference”. So all you players must be aware of this.
In addition to that, the scam tells the players that their accounts have unusual activity and they must put their security answers. They may then reset your password for the game. Players might also be prompted for backup security answers. Many players might also give their banking and other information as well. This can cause lots of issues and other social networking accounts can also be hacked thereby. GFI has warned all the victims of such a phishing attack to change their passwords of all social networking sites before any more severe damage is caused.
So be cautious before entering any vital data if asked repeatedly in the game star wars.
