An exploration of security issues relating to consoles and their risks to both home users and the business environment. This will include issues such as custom built DDoS tools, social engineering of Microsoft support staff, account theft, the risk to businesses and personal tips to keep your own details secure. I will also examine the trade of stolen Xbox accounts in return for credit cards, how the rewards that companies give gamers make them targets because of the inadequate privacy features and how free programs allow hackers to exploit profanity filters, paid content and even the profiles themselves.
