According to this BBC report, “Xbox Live is being targeted by malicious hackers selling services that kick players off the network.”
These services, apparently, are “proving popular with players who want a way to get revenge on those who beat them in an Xbox Live game.”
Halo 3 players are a popular target for the attacks, says the piece.
Microsoft’s investigating the claims and will ban Live users found guilty of illegal player-expunging.
