I know the second one isn't Xbox, it just shows how easy it was for him to hack into the mobile marketplace.

That was a hack to get more points, not a big hack that comprimised accounts. Two completely different things.

You account has a lot of security on it. To do any account changes or buy anything you have to be on a stored computer, signed into your account, and using internet explorer. If you are on a different computer, you will get a text to your cell phone or to your email address on file to give you permission to add that computer on your account .

So it is not easy. The hacker would have to go right in behind everything, or they would have to know how to emulate your computer at home, and have access to your email or cell phone.

Using a bug to get free points, not a good example. As of now, Live accounts have not been hacked since their security upgrades. Any accounts that have been hacked are user error, and a big one is clicking on links to get free points.

Understandable, but Xbox accounts also get hacked all the time. It's not the easiest thing to do, but it's not impossible.

Also, what security upgrades? I don't remember those being with the current dashboard.

They are part of the whole Microsoft account. Your xbox live account is merged with a microsoft account

So yoru messenger, xbox, windows everythign is all linked to one. Anytime I go online and try to buy points from a different computer, i get a text on my phone with a code to enter on computer.

This doesnt happen on the console because your console is already linked to your account.

Interesting, but that by itself doesn't prevent hacking. It just makes it easier for the victim to find out.

But it stops any transactions from happening. That is the important part. But you are right, hacking is going to happen, but this at least limits the damage. But when you hear one or a couple people been hacked, that is usually the users fault

If there was an actually hack to the system like PSN, it does not stay quite and you would see 100s and 1000s of people complaining.

It does when the person trying to get in can't access anything without entering the code that got sent to your phone, or to an alternate email.

I believe you need to log in on a computer to turn on the extra proofs.
