A couple from Dublin, Ireland had to call the cops last week when their Xbox 360 console was spammed with images of child pornography.

With their real names withheld due to the nature of the case, "Amy" said her boyfriend had been playing a game when a message from another user popped up. Upon opening it, he was confronted with "images of boys naked from the waist down".


The pair contacted both Microsoft and the Gardaí, Ireland's fantastically-named police force. Microsoft, who self-moderate the Xbox Live service, instructed them to immediately delete the message, while the Gardaí have "confiscated" the console.
