Microsoft: LIVE Security 'Our Highest Priority'

It's not for nothing that I had a dream in the night that all of my personal computers suddenly became sentient and robbed me blind, in spite of there being no evidence of fraudulent activity as yet, the PSN crash has left the industry (and tech lovers everywhere) slightly shaken. With that in mind, Microsoft has moved to try and reassure the 30 million+ folk signed up to Xbox LIVE, giving a statement to Eurogamer in which the company asserted that 'the security around our Xbox Live service and member information is our highest priority'.

This comes following yesterday's slight alert on the LIVE support site, warning against possible phishing attempts over Modern Warfare 2's online multiplayer.

Probably wise not to boast incase unwanted attention goes their way

That is not boasting. I suggest you look up the definition of boasting.

I don't think Gunn was suggesting Microsoft were boasting...quite the opposite, in fact. Keeping a low profile whilst quietly touting one's own commitment to service security with nondescript language is essentially pre-emptive damage control and also good taste.

If Microsoft had wheeled out the ROFLcopter, 70 million PSN users might have found that a bit offensive considering the circumstances.

Yes didn't mean that was boasting, it was to say that they've done the right thing.
