Xbox live hacked…?

xboxlive_logo_thumb-600x300

Xbox live users are reporting that their accounts have been hacked and purchases been made without their knowledge.

The hackers appear to be recovering peoples accounts on their consoles and then making purchases with any existing points or stored credit cards to get some points.  Strangely enough the purchases made are in the main only on Fifa 12.

So just in case your worried maybe a password change is required by all, if anything its healthy to make sure you change it regularly anyway.

Having not been on my Xbox for the past week it is a slight concern.
