Urges password updates...
Microsoft has added security improvements to Xbox Live. General Manager Alex Garden, suggests everyone update their passwords.
Xbox LIVE General Manager Alex Garden has detailed a range of "improvements" made to the XBOX Live service in order to protect we would-be victims.
He has also suggested that all XBL users update their passwords.
Here's what they've done in order to keep you 'safe':“I encourage everyone to take five minutes today to check your security information and update it if necessary,” he said. “If you have any lost or stolen security proofs, update them now to prevent any interruptions to your Xbox Live service in the future. We only use this information for your security, and never for marketing or advertising.”
“The Internet has transformed the way we purchase goods and services and added layers of convenience to our lives,” Garden continued. “Yet, disappointingly, online fraud increasingly victimizes millions of unsuspecting consumers each year.
“That is why our resolve at Microsoft to battle fraud and our commitment to account security is stronger than ever. I hope you’ll take a few moments to protect your account today.”
There you go. Better do as he said, so you don't troubles in the future.- We’ve taken legal action to pull down online posts of gamertags, usernames and passwords gathered from malware or phishing schemes to help protect our members.
- Our Xbox LIVE Spring update included many behind the scenes improvements that help us build on security enhancements for the near future.
- We’re sending unique codes to the security phone numbers and secondary email addresses provided by members to verify authorization for Xbox.com purchases or account change attempts not stemming from a member’s trusted device.
