seems like they got the passwords from another site, not directly from XBLive.

Umm no. Stop reaching so hard Magus. This is incidential individual password hacks, of 62,000, which only a small unknown(pro reporting) amount are from XBL, not an all encompassing hack of the entire network, ala Sony and PSN. Trying to compare the two to defend sony is laughable.

Actually, no, XBOX LIVE was not hacked.

What happened was the SEGA website's SEGA PASS accounts were hacked, and a select group of people who used the same login/passwrod for SEGA PASS and XBOX LIVE then had their XBOX LIVE account stolen which is the fault of both SEGA's leak and the user using the same password across both services. Using the same tactic, they stole the facebook and email accounts of some of the same users.

This has nothing to do with XBOX LIVE at all, really, because there is no way Microsoft could force people to use different passwords across all their accounts. They do encourage this, but many do not listen.

Seriously, If you look at the comments of the blog post you will see that everyone agrees that the author just dislikes Sony.

Dailytech is starting to lean to much towards the blogs then Tech News Reporting like they use to.

I often wonder. If my car were stolen, would I blame Ford for not making my car theft proof? No I'd probably blame the thief. It might be a flawed comparison, but I feel frustrated with how things are handled by the IT media. To me all these hacks of recent are a form of terrorism, and thus, those doing it should be treated as such. Obviously not quite to the degree as a 'RL' terrorist.

Just sayin'
