Is Xbox Live Unhackable?

"At this point the PlayStation Plus service is a lot more appetizing than the Xbox Live service, or at least to the bystander. Early adopters of the PlayStation 4 already have plenty of free games to keep them entertained until the next big game comes out. The Xbox One, on the other hand, seems to be suffering from a drought. However, Xbox gamers don't seem to mind; they think the extra dosh is worth forking out for an unhackable service." (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, Xbox One)

This article seems more like a "come at me, bro" taunt.

Everything can be hacked.

Yh it's real silly some of the reasoning and statement on there made my eyes open.

Lol the internet would be made out of Xbox Live if Xbox Live was unhackable.

NSA, CIA, MIB, you've been doing it all wrong. Backup your shiz with Xbox Live!

Good to see at least someone don't have their heads in the clouds thinking XBL is unhackable and looool at them linking user account comprises to a whole network being hacked like those incidents have never happened to XBL users as well.

And further Loooool at some of them thinking all games on XBL at the moment use azure. Man marketing can be damn effective.

Did Major Nelson get his account hacked?

I remember that happening a long time ago.

Major Nelson, Pachter, Stephen Toulouse...supposedly through "social engineering" according to MS.

"social engineering"

The heck does that mean?

Wait are they saying that a bunch of communists kidnapped these people and brainwashed them into giving them their codes?

LOL

Kidding but i know what that means. Means they were duped into giving their passwords. ROFL

Nothing is unhackable..

But hacking Microsoft has got to be up there in terms of difficulty..

Nothing is unhackable. In fact, calling something unhackable will probably make it get hacked even quicker.

PSN Network Breach Apirl 28 2011.... that is all

"that is all"

So with your only contribution to the discussion you chose to completely ignore the question?

Nothing is unhackable. It's happened to major companies, banks, and governments.

Nothing is, but MS hires hackers to help strengthen its online security!
headblackman  +   245d ago
let's be clear with this! this question isn't being asked because they don't know the answer. it's being asked to challenge hackers is all. it's not microsoft challenging the hackers, it's the haters trying to gas up a challenge to hackers. clam that bs down and get back to gaming and stop writing articles like this.

No, stupid title is stupid. If the FBI can be hacked by anonymous in less than a day xbl has no chance if there are 300,000 servers in which they could be comprised.
