Increased Reports of Xbox Live Hacked Accounts Surfacing

So, we know Xbox Live is pretty secure, but things are getting a lot weirder lately. After the things that happened to PSN a few months back, we realized that no one is safe. Now, we have received reports from various people and other sources that many people are complaining of hacked accounts on Xbox Live.

One user from Neogaf says, “Decided to check Gamefaqs forum just on a whim, and apparently this happened to 3 other people, possibly more. Whoever jacked my account ended up buying 2 sets of 4000 points and 1 1600.

One user blogged about it, “On September 6th, just after 9 AM, I received an email informing me that my purchase of 1600 Microsoft points had been unsuccessful. This was something of a surprise, as I had not attempted to buy any Microsoft points that day, so I logged into my Xbox Live account to find out what was going on.

“Sure enough, all of the Microsoft points that were stored in my XBL account had been spent on in game items for FIFA 11 (I don’t own that game… hell, I don’t even like soccer video games) and whoever spent my MS points had then tried to purchase more.”

Now we can see an entire post in Reddit dedicated to this.
