Xbox 360 ‘Hack Proof’

Microsoft plans to make its next generation games console, the Xbox 360, as difficult as possible to hack.

The 360 will have security built directly into the hardware, said Xbox engineer Chris Satchell.

Fans have modified the first Xbox to turn it into a media centre, upgrade the hard drive or allow it to play imported games.

Modifying a console is illegal in the UK as it can be used to get around anti-piracy measures on the Xbox.

While I don’t condone piracy in any form, I think its a really bad idea for Microsoft to shout about the 360 and it being hack proof. That’s basically asking inviting any would-be hacker to give it a try!
