Following a 30-day investigation, Microsoft informs an Xbox Live user that he has lost access to his Xbox Live account. Why? Check out the story for the full details!
AnalogHype is currently down, I will update this post when it is back up.
The site is back up.
Why are these same news constantly popping up? Getting boring...
LOLOL... seriously, try being a Sony fan. this is NOTHING
I am a fan of Sony products. Mainly PS3. Still this is boring.
Just mark them as old or duplicate (if appropriate). Then vote the site. I also sometimes take a look at the approvals to see if the same offenders tend to pop up approving [email protected]
Funny. Many people didnt say the same about the Sony hacking :/ People found the news quite interesting, if not frightening at the same time.
Great work as always from Microsoft. -_-
arent you glad we dont have to deal with this BS? The biggest problem for us is what game we gotta play first!! *rich guy laugh*
If you're stupid enough to fall for phishing you shouldn't be on the Internet to begin with.
I agree with your statement 100%. And if you use Internet Explorer you shouldn't be on the internet either because apparently you have to be spoon-fed stuff. >.>
I use ie9x64 because it is the nicest, fastest browser, and the only browser on the market that hasn't been pwned at pwn2own. It is just bizarro that Silverlight hasn't been released for x64 though.
^ That's a joke, though. It's the slowest, doesn't run on computer without a graphics card, still has horrible standards for the webs current and even 5-year old technologies because of unfixed bugs that have been there for years. It is also used by the highest "computard" percentage compared to any browser. Nicest? Copy Chrome's UI and plug all IE8's tools and add 1% HTML5 compatibility win no bug fixes from IE8 into it with the unneeded crap IE8's (AKA IE6's) menus and that's IE9. It's the WORST of Chrome/Opera/FF/IE in the list. Stop being in denial, it's a POS. Even Firefox copied Chrome's UI but it did it so much better than IE9 it's not even funny, at least use FF FFS! And people didn't even try to touch Chrome or Firefox at pwn2own, the fact people went to IE first should be a giant red flag that there is vulnerabilities more numerous than any modern browser. Get out of the stone age, Internet Exploder is still p!$$ poor browser for being released just last year, it's still trying to catch up what Firefox and Chrome have offered since 2010, let alone moving forward in web technologies.
@3gengames. Im a firefox user and always will be, but IE9x64 is pretty good. Its the fastest browser Ive seen, the only reason Im still on firefox is I have everything saved and sync'd. Firefox has been quite bad since 4.0 but if you change the threading and connetions per server etc...It does go back to very quick speeds.
We are not born into the world with knowledge already stored into our brains. If someone makes a mistake or believes something that you BELIEVE to be common sense, then you are the fool for looking down on them. Sometimes we learn the hard way, while others learn from the mistakes of those who suffer.
I totally agree with you. My problem however is that most people won't or don't take the time to learn about simple things. They will wait until they do learn the hard way instead of taking a few minutes to understand how something works and actively educated themselves.
looks like I made a typo "...or believes something OTHER THAN WHAT you believe to be..." @FunAndGun While you are correct, you must also realise that we make the most mistakes when something is new to us. Also those who are new to a new type of technology (or in general) might be a little overwhelmed. What may be a easy concept for one may be almost impossible for another to understand. It is hard to pin point what is a easy mistake and what is not as nothing is ever common sense.
shit happens your account gets compromised but companies like ms and sony etc should be better and faster at helping their customers when it happens!
How is IAmCornholio's post "OffTopic"??? The entire first half of the story is about LadyElysium.
Someone "hacked" my account, and M$ was nothing but awesome to me. They caught the second charge made and automatically refunded it, and the 25 day investigation was completed without issue and the money was refunded. The woman I talked to was super nice, and they suspended and locked down my account so no one could access it at all during the investigation. I also received two free XBL Gold month cards from them. Their customer service was really better than I expected.
It's nice that they treated you as you deserved to be, but the same can't be said for hundreds of others. who are going through the same issue as LadyElysium and many without resolve. I have a question. Just wondering, do you know if you were you a victim of a phishing scam? Did you enter your details on a website that wasn't Xbox.com?
Not even once. I'm super cautious with stuff like that. I don't even use my email for XBL anywhere else ever, and I definitely have neverrrrrr entered anything in for free M$ points, or .. free anything. Ever. I'm still at a loss why my account was taken over by someone else, but at the end of the day, I wasn't even really inconvenienced too badly, so I'm definitely glad I got a good customer service rep who made the process super easy.
