Microsoft has moved to rubbish claims that the Xbox Live downtime over the weekend, which caused users to be unable to log in to the service, was the result of a hacking attempt.

Hacktivist group Anonymous was reported to be behind the outage that the service experienced on April 13, but Microsoft has stated that this is incorrect.

“The Xbox Live service outage on 13 April resulted from networking misconfiguration during routine maintenance and was in no way related to false claims of hacking the service,” the company said in a statement to Geekwire.
