Has Xbox or any other Microsoft networks been hit by DDoS and Hacker attacks?

After seeing this topic http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/691088-xbox-one/69926207, I wondered if and Xbox has ever been hit by hackers or DDoS attacks.

If so, care to share some back story on these attacks? And what was the public reaction to it?
