Submission + - Anonymous says its taking down Fox News Site Nove (securitynewsdaily.com)

Killer Instinct writes: To combat what it calls Fox News' "continued, right-wing conservative propaganda," the video announces the kickoff of "Operation Fox Hunt," and says that on Nov. 5, Anonymous members will destroy the Fox News website, (the video does not specify how). Not only does the video promise to take down the news site, but Anonymous, the video says, will "also engage in a propaganda campaign of our own to show them how it feels to be chastised."
>So what do they mean by destroy the web site? Its one thing to do a DoS, or even hack in and change the front page. But to destroy the web site would take a lot more then anonymous has done before.

Submission + - Xbox Live users suffering hacked accounts (arstechnica.com)

Killer Instinct writes: Microsoft responded to complaints that their XBOX Live network had been hacked ...oeWe do not have any evidence the Xbox LIVE service has been compromised. We take the security of our service seriously and work on an ongoing basis to improve it against evolving threats. However, a limited number of members have contacted us regarding unauthorized access to their accounts by outside individuals. We are working with our impacted members directly to resolve any unauthorized changes to their accounts.

So the only thing they have done is ...."Microsoft's response has been to lock down affected accounts for 25 days while the company investigates the charges."
Has your XBOX Live account been compromised?
