    Halo 4 Phishing site stalked by Microsoft

    Halo 4 is real, a game in the works by 343 Industries, but a phishing website for the game has been getting an awful lot of traffic. The site appears as if a Halo 4 Beta sign-up, but leave your information and more than 12 year olds will be powning you. Microsoft itself is now going after Halo4Beta.net, attempting to get the domain shut down for good or atleast a change in ownership.

    With a timid response the owners quickly shut down the site after and employee tweeted about it, but the litigation did not stop there. Microsoft is filing a complaint with the NAF (National Arbitration Forum, whatever that is), to get the domain transferred to Microsoft. I feel this may be a bit of profiteering on Microsoft’s end.

    Halo 4 is officially announced with a speculative release date of the Holiday Season 2012, the announcement of Halo 5 and Halo 6 were also made. They will form a second trilogy to the franchise.
