Xbox Live Account Hacked for Recon Armor

It looks like Microsoft has done very little to prevent hackers from stealing Xbox Live accounts, this time somebody's account was stolen in Halo 3 because he had the ultra rare Recon Armour.

The story is too old to be commented.

wow live sounds about has safe has windows...
sad for a closed system run by the self proclaimed system experts....

edit: Point m8 no point in bragging up psn on an xbox thread but this really sucks for all of those paying users. Hope they get the message and fix it.

edit2: started a thread here on how to secure you live account (hopefully well get some good tips) http://forums.n4g.com/prote...

XBL is a great online service, the whole point of this newsstory is to get the word out to Microsoft that they need to add more security into their service.

maybe thats because you stealing Xbox Live accounts and useing it at your house...is like goin to a police HQ and stealing a gun....(for those of you that dont know m$ know where you are down to which room in your house when ever you log into live so go ahead steal Xbox Live accounts and enjoy 10 years in jail.

lol 10 years
lol lol lol
m8 no ones ever gotten charged for stealing an M$ account and Ill guaranty M$ will never charge anyone for it.

edit it be interesting to see someone file a civil suit over it tho unlikely to ever happen.

edit @ jackwho theres a big difference between giving the cops what they have a legal right to demand and putting the money, time and negative pr into policing your own systems... Not like this is a M$ thing tho its pretty standard practice for any big corporation to avoid extra cost and neg publicity m8

ms has alredy used this to help the cops n track missing xbox360 shipment...and you think Ms will never charge anyone for it??...you need to go read the Xbox LIVE Terms of Use and Privacy Statement

It's called phishing. People put their real info on their gamercards allowing people to hack into their Windows Live ID.

isn't really the definition of phishing, but your point is a very valid one,nonetheless.Never put real world info in to insecure systems,as you imply in your post.A bubble for a very 'aware' comment.
