    Default Lots of Xbox Live Accounts Hacked

    werthliving.com

    It's been all over the video game media lately that there's some sort of exploit with FIFA 12, but Microsoft and EA are flatly denying that it's happening.

    Xbox Live users suffering hacked accounts, FIFA 11 and 12 purchases (Updated with Microsoft's response) from Ars Technica
    Microsoft, EA Claim FIFA Isn't Causing Rash of Xbox Live Hacks from Giant Bomb
    Xbox Live thieves steal accounts for FIFA 11/12 purchases from ComputerAndVideoGames.com

    Lots of users are reporting it on gaming web sites, and reports are mounting.

    I found this fascinating in the wake of the PS3 hacking, but it suddenly became very concrete; it's now happened to me. And as of today, it's happened twice in the last month. Hijackers defeated or bypassed very strong, unique passwords in both cases. My account now has about $80 of fraudulent charges made on it, with all those XBLA points spent on FIFA 12, a game I do not own. Called Microsoft, and they're locking my account for 25 days and opening an investigation. Crazy.

    I would advise you not keep many spare points on your account, and perhaps remove credit cards associated with your XBLA accounts until this is resolved.

    Be careful.

    LOL.

    Just kidding that blows.

    My policy is, if someone wants to hack my Xbox account and buy a video game with it, then they deserve to have that video game; they've earned it, and I will foot the bill
