Below you will find a video of the alleged hacker showing off his supposed ‘Victory’ over major nelson. The video is NSFW.
A group of hackers that call themselves Fear have hacked into Larry Hyrb’s, also known as Major Nelson, Xbox Live account yesterday night (PST). Some Twitter snippets from the Director of Policy and Enforcement for Xbox LIVE Stephen Toulouse via twitter:
- Thanks for the heads up folks. we have gotten Major’s account back. We’ll investigate what happened.
- Looks like this was very specific and very targeted to Major. I’ll look into the details and report back later.
- But for now everything’s back to normal.
Don’t worry, this was an extremely focused attack at a very famous person. The hacker just wanted some quick fame before getting into trouble.
The odds of you getting hacked (unless you are famous) are extremely slim. But remember, the internet is a very unsafe place so follow internet safety rules at all times, Xbox Live is no different.
