XBox vulnerable.

 

Cyber crime is now taking candy from kiddies.  Of course, it is really stealing from Mom and Dad, and is just as reprehensible as any other cyber theft.  In this case, stealing virtual characters and points, but the charges mount up.

 

Apparently some of the thieves are being brazen about it.  The courts should give them good reason to laugh.

Actually, if you can steal someones Xbox account who has bought a lot of DLC for their games, you steal the DLC which can amount to quite a bit of cash. 

 

Not to mention the fact that they steal something you spend a whole lot of time investing in.

Yep.  Yet another reason to avoid DLC stuff like the plague.  Too much stuff is floating around on-line.  I like to have my assets where I can touch them.

To echo Moose's sediments, thats why I am VERY against the new craze to have "codes" that link games to accounts. So now with alot of games, if you buy the physical copy it comes with a code that links that one game to your account... well what happens if you have your account hacked?

 

you now have this $60.00 worthless disk.

That is done in order to be able to prevent people from buying and selling games used. The publishers decided that market was costing them money.

 

It utterly destroys future legacy use of the console, but hey, it means profits.

It's sad when people steal from kids, be it electronically or physically, This event also reinforces some of the flaws that paid online services must combat, and why we must plug as many holes in the system as fast as possible as digital distribution becomes more and more popular around the world.
