Microsoft Says Internet Security is In Its DNA; Vows to Protect Xbox Live Information


From Daily Tech:
Internet security has become one of the largest web-related concerns now that 2011 has been riddled with major corporate and government hacks. Since January 4, hacker groups like LulzSec (Lulz Security), Anonymous and Goatse Security have attacked Gmail accounts, Bank of America, Lockheed Martin Corp., and government sectors in the United States, Tunisia, the United Kingdom and Spain.

The gaming community was not safe, either. On April 20, Sony's largest international databases -- the PlayStation Network (PSN) and the Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) databases -- went offline due to a massive security breach that compromised the personal information of millions of users. Sony announced the breach on April 26, and admitted that millions of customers' credit card numbers were stolen and put up for sale on the internet as well. This led to several PS3 returns around the world in exchange for Xbox 360's.
