It seems reading many of the comments, that this is not that uncommon.

Funny really, but everybody seemed to find a reason to comment on Sony over the PSN hack. Not one person felt concerned enough though, to comment about what seems to be a regular occurrence on the XBL network?

It's a funny old world. wink

They may have just cause to hate Sony, I don't know. But MS don't seem any better. They don't even want to pretend that no data has been lost. They just don't respond to the question, which I thought would be their legal responsibility after taking and not protecting users' data?

Seems some of the grandstanders who trumpeted the facts about the PSN hack are too busy with their hands in their pockets, staring at the floor and whistling?

Yep, a funny old world indeed. Anyway, in other news.........

Did you see Watchdog the other week with customers that have been accused of cheating having there 360 banned.

Mostly 10 year old kids that quite clearly did not look like hackers,but the mother of one had replaced his banned xbox 360 with a Playstation 3 and refused to support Microsoft anymore.

After appearing on Watchdog Microsoft as always after been on a prime television show decided to reimburse anyone that had to go out and buy a brand new console because of the bans,except the mother who bought a Playstation 3 who they told would not be getting any money because she has not bought there console.

This account exploiting is no where in the same league as what happened at Sony not even close .

I can see what your up to in this thread as I'm sure most other can and you replying to your self , did kind of prove that , hence why I did not reply .

It's not as wide spread as you might like to think ( blog post with 7 replies ) but all the time there is human interaction there is a chance to hack and exploit and Microsoft do swing the ban hammer as has already been pointed out in this thread .

As said not even on the same page as what happened at Sony , this is on a personal level not on a massive level .

With TalkTalk , not as bad as some might have you believe

No you can't, and you've just proven it.

Theft is theft. End of conversation. I was clearly asking why people condemn one company over the other. You don't know how wide spread it is, and you dont know how much actual card fraud was carried out on either occasion.

You can make it a fanboy issue if you like. I personally treat all big companies with the contempt they deserve.

Micro do swing the ban hammer as has already been pointed out in this thread .

And the ban hammer helps in the disclosure of loss of credit card information and actually fraudulent misuse in what way?

Think before you troll. Apology accepted. wink

Yes, but that's not his complaint. His complaint is that someone has spent money on his account and MS do not seem to be prepared to discuss any data protection breach with him.
