Early this year reports emerged regarding the safety of Xbox Live users, especially minors. Microsoft have responded by claiming the safety of Live users is their top priority. This comes after news that a 14 year old boy was molested after meeting his attacker from the Live service. Microsoft have placed several policing methods on Live, such as parental locking on the 360, aswell as working with various authorities.
