Host Booter Defense


Recently an XBox Live host booter tool has become popular, and I've fallen victim a few times. How can I protect myself from it? My XBox 360 connects through a router and a cable modem.


Thank you for your help.

To paraphrase Han Solo "let the booter win."


Best bet is to get a hold of your ISP and see if they've got any defences they can offer you. As far as the service goes all you can do is file complaints, set these people to avoid and get the police involved at your discretion. Before someone says "that's a little extreme isn't it?" I will say that Denial of Service attacks (posh talk for host booting) are illegal on both sides of the pond and someone on my side of the pond has already been arrested for host booting in COD.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
