Elder Scrolls Online players report having encountered phishing attacks: attackers send them messages on behalf of the developers.
According to messages from users on Reddit, the fraudster is hiding under the pseudonym ElderScrollDevs, and he is primarily interested in users of PlayStation consoles. An attacker sends users private messages in which he warns of a security problem.
Such messages state that a suspicious activity has been detected associated with the user account, and now he needs to immediately confirm that he is the rightful owner of the account. To do this, it is proposed to respond to the message of the offender and give him account information. The victims are informed that they have 15 minutes to provide their email, password and date of birth specified in the account, otherwise the user will be allegedly blocked in the game and denied access to servers on all platforms.
Apparently, this campaign is aimed at stealing in-game items of players (both earned and acquired) for subsequent resale on the darknet.
However, on Reddit, users note a random capital letter and other grammatical errors in the message of the attacker, although in general this message is more convincing than other phishing campaigns related to games, for example, aimed at World of Warcraft players.
