Just shows even Microsoft are vulnerable.

I'm not trying to start anything, but if you look at my comments from like a year ago, then you'll notice how I said.....

"I can buy as many xbox live accounts as I want from "" a chinese website like amazon here in China."

But someone at Microsoft cracked down on them and most of them have been removed. But you can bet that the less popular sales sites still have plenty of sellers.

PS: Before they were removed from taobao, I could literally find over 500 sellers.

edit - Yes, I did purchase one, but I had no clue it was a stolen account, I just wanted xbox live points to play Age of Empires Online. My Chinese friend did everything for me and then I asked why I had messages from people I didn't know on my xbox and he told me it's from the real owner of the account. Unbelievable but true.

That is really scary tbh.

Major Nelson did have his account hacked one, it was sold on Ebay (only dumb hackers would be that foolish).

No console is really safe when it comes to hackers.

Even though the PS3 has been jailbroken, I'm really thankful they still haven't gotten through the multiplayer or online stuff.

Of course they have gotten to the PS3 as well, but it is on a per game basis like all the other systems out there.

Ever tried playing CoD on PS3? Yup, plenty of cheaters there.
