Xbox Support: Xbox Live Has Not Been Compromised (Data Is Fake)

Rumours were spreading yesterday that Lulzsec had somehow managed to hack Xbox Live after they posted a list of email addresses and passwords and told people to try them on sites like Xbox.com.

This however isn’t the case according to one Xbox Support member who says that Lulzsec has just released a random set of email addresses and passwords in the hope that their is a matching combination.

They went on to say that there is currently no evidence that the service has been breached in anyway but they will continue to keep a close eye on the situation.

“This
group appears to have posted a list of thousands of potential email addresses
and passwords, and encouraged users to try them across various online sites
like Xbox LIVE in the event one of the users happens to use the same password
and email address combination. At this time we do not have any evidence
Xbox LIVE has been compromised. However we take the security of our service
seriously and work on an ongoing basis to improve it against evolving threats.”
