Xbox Live Informative - XBox Live Hacked

Review by 32031 on 2007-03-22
If you have an Xbox 360 and a Windows Live ID account you might want to check the your account activity. A group of hackers has broken security for Xbox Live and has been using personal data to purchase 'points' and merchandise. M$ has confirmed it.

Yikes. I have an Xbox, but have not signed up for the Windows Live ID yet. Thanks for heads up!

As an update, M$ claims there was never a breach of security. Apparently, according to M$, what happened was that some users were duped into giving up their personal data. Yet there are several groups who claim to be stealing account information. For details go to ZDNET and search for XBox Live.

Is this a definite fact being denied by Microsoft or a rumor needing customers to do research into it?
