Microsoft need to re-think their strategy for family packs, as these stolen accounts are linked to it right away. Perhaps if they removed it, or made it so the 'child account' has to go through a 2 email verification process, where the 2 email accounts are those of the person(s) who is paying for the subscription/points, then it would make things a lot more difficult for those who steal and sell the accounts.

Just my 2 cents on it.
