Account Hacking? Real | Fake
Posted 22 July 2010 - 06:16 AM
When this happens, a lot of people start to bum this person who claims they can hack accounts and the person who was threatened gets scared and backs out. However, when someone says it to me I always challenge them to hack my account and nothing happens. I have had one person say I need to join in a private match for them to able to hack me which I declined to joining a private match (I admit, I was worried he could be legit as he was the only person who replied giving the impression it could be real).
I have tried to Google the answer but all the articles I found are always like the old email scam (email - http://www.thegamefo...-gamertags.html). Who even falls for those? Jesus!
So, my question is; Can an xbox live account really get hacked? Can someone really find out your email address and/or password?
As for myself, I don't believe it's possible. I know you can hack a game and I understand how you can, but it's a totally different type of 'hack'.

90% of the time that's the reason for any sort of account compromise. Short of someone actually, physically, tampering with your computer (installing something malicious while you're out).
Anyway, the only obvious way I can see someone hijacking an XBL account would be through a phishing scam like you showed. If you're naive enough to fall for that though...

Usually what people refer to account hacking in normal situations is where the normal user has entered their username or password in the presence of a keylogger virus or passed info on to sombody else. Don't download things you don't know the origin of, and you won't get hacked. Simple. Surely you've heard that.

I can't help but agree with this 100%.
In the world of computers anything is possible. Most likely they are bull shit. If someone says they are going to hack you its 99% bullshit. It is possible to get hacked though.
I only know two people who have had their console accounts compromised and only their Ultimate Teams (Fifa 11) we're hacked, leading me to think they got scammed by someone offering free coins. 99% of the time as MartyJ has said the person is probably just raging for some reason.
