Microsoft’s Xbox Entertainment Awards voting application has been taken offline for maintenance following an alleged security breach.
MCV was contacted by a reader who provided a link to a page which showed the names, Gamertags, emails, and birthdays of everyone who had voted on the awards so far. The site also claims that anyone who accessed the page was able to edit or delete any entries they wished. At the time the page was shown to them the number of entries totaled 2,892
Voting has since been suspended and the site taken offline with Microsoft providing the following statement: “We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the Xbox Entertainment Awards landing page and have taken the site offline while we investigate.”
Microsoft launched the Xbox Entertainment Awards yesterday and asked fans to vote on their favorite products across a range of categories.
