View Full Version : Possibly hacked or Microsoft Error?

So I wake up today and I already knew Xbox Live would be down for up to 24 hours but when I go to check my blog I see I have "Privacy Settings" Enabled when I know I actually don't. Well I figured it just had something to do with server maintenance going on right now. But just in case I go and search my gamertag on mygamercard.net (feel free to do so yourself to see what I'm talking about).

Well to my surprise it says:

Last seen on xbox.com

Offline for 4 hours

Why is this such a big deal you ask? Well I was not on xbox.com at all yesterday and 4 hours ago I was asleep. But then I though how could I've gotten hacked when the server maintenance was going on at that time as well. That means they could not have signed in with my info.

And before anybody ask no I do not fall for these stupide "Free MS Points" websites. I'm smart enough to not do that. I rarely use xbox.com so I don't accidentally sign in to a fake version of it. I do change my password very frequently and it's usually a pretty good one when I do.

So my question is did I possibly get hacked or is this just a Microsoft error due to their maintenance?

I get the privacy settings enabled problem all the time. All my settings are set to public yet i still get the privacy enabled. Its annoying becuase its so random and no one seems to have any way to fix it :( as for your xbox.com problem i would say its due to live being down.

I'm guessing its to do with LIVE begin down, right now it says my Privacy Settings are on and I was last on Xbox.com 4 Minutes ago.

My friends profile has

"Playing Call of Duty: WaW
In Pre-Game Lobby
Online For 2 Mins"

My guess is MGC could be picking up old data.

For me it says I was last seen on xbox.com 5 minutes ago but I haven't gone to xbox.com today. It probably just has something to do with the maintenance.

it could be both but I hope you didn't get hacked I got hacked and it really sucked but I got it back and now I am happy

I agree with Gun Nut. Since the servers are empty maybe it's just picking up old data.

EDIT: Yeah, mine says that I was last on one hour ago.

So as long as you are able to sign in tomorrow you don't have anything to worry about. Hope the suspense doesn't kill you lol.

Well my first guess was that it was due to the maintenance going on. I was just a little skeptical and worried seeing as how I rarely use xbox.com. Appreciate all the reply's and now I see it must be due to the maintenance since most of MGC has most of my friends as being online and my status has not changed. It still says "Offline for 4 hours".

@ laundryman - The suspense won't kill me because if I get randomly hacked for no reason then Microsoft would have a lawsuit on their hands. If I did not go to a "Free MS Points" site or give my password and information out then Microsoft is responsible, not me.

MGC.net says this for me:

Last Playing Xbox 360 Dashboard

Offline for 2 Hrs

But i didn't play with my account today lol so i believe it's just a problem of Xbox Live

Then the suspense of whether or not you'll be able to file a lawsuit will kill you :p

OH the funny things that happen due to technical problems... priceless. I would hold onto that. I wonder what mine says...

Nothing. Fucking lame. :(

Mine says I've been online for 3 hours in the dashboard watching a video. Which makes sense because the last time I was online I was online for a little more than 3 hours watching House

One achievement I obtained in DMC4 claimed I got it in the 1950's!

I checked mygamercard.net yesterday I was on 11 hours ago on Xbox.com and I haven't been on XBL or Xbox.com in 3 days.

Why does every moron immediately resort to the "I've Been HACKED!" fallacy? Dude, unless some one had a reason to hack you, and they REALLY know what they are doing (seriously - a hacker would be hacking Microfreakin'soft - that's not a walk in the park), you're fine.

Calm down. It's probably just an error - my account does that on occasion (automatically updates my last time online, even when I wasn't online) too.


EDIT: I'm not necessarily calling you, the poster, a moron. I see far too many of these claims, and I'm sorry to generalize.

I know there is a legitimate chance it is due to the server maintenance. Trust me I'm not gonna jump up and say I was hacked without 100% knowing I was. I was just simply asking and to see if anybody else was having the same problem. But I know exactly what you're talking about with people jumping to conclusions over things like this.

EDIT: Also my post was not meant to be rude to you or anything. Just posting up a reply to your previous post.

DOUBLE EDIT: Well everything seems to be fine and back to normal. I was able to sign in fine and it no longer says my privacy setting are enabled. So that's a relief. Appreciate all the responses.
