‘No Evidence’ LIVE Was Ever Hacked

Microsoft has today released a statement regarding the possible intrusion by the hacker group Lulz Security.

Lulz Security or LulzSec reportedly stole information from over 62,000 private internet accounts including details from Xbox LIVE. Microsoft though has dismissed rumours that Xbox LIVE was indeed hacked saying in a subsequent statement:

“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.”

Despite this statement it is known that LulzSec released a file on Thursday morning and re-released in the same evening. They went on to brag about ‘thousands’ of downloads on said file. According to Microsoft despite the threats of LIVE account information being stolen they say that there has been no breach.
