Microsoft Security and Fifa 12 Servers

Am posting on behalf of a friend cause he cant get into his account.....

Last week my collegue ( b1ack adder) decided to buy fifa 12 he had the game less than 3 Hrs before he got his account hacked /cloned

it happened when he decided to play UT and downloaded the free player pack from inside Fifa 12 he got d/ced from xboxlive and fifa severs he then couldnt logg back into live and one of your collegues via phone told him to recover his gamertag after doing this he got back online but didnt notice his account had been hacked/cloned they used his debit card to purchase more player packs for fifa 12 and spent his exsiting MS pts he now has contacted you again and his account has been banned my question is whos to blame cause EA state it was an xboxlive live error and xboxlive is liable for compensation but then your collegues told b1ack adder ( MR hodgson ) that its EA who is responsible so who is responsible XBOX LIVE or EA ..... would really like to know or a number that Mr Hodgson can called would be nice but not one were he gets passed around.....

Question Info

EA games run on their own servers, not over Xbox Live and no the 360 can't get malware as it wont run unsigned code.

You are always on Xbox Live servers even if your playing EA games on there servers.

its more like a second tier server.. B/c you can still do everything you would do if you were just at the dashboard on live.

If you were just on EA servers you would lose all your XBL access.

From the looks of it, when you create a EA account, its using the same WLID info, thus why hackers are able to recover the accounts.

Can't be because when you sign up to EA initially it only requires you to enter an e-mail address and then asks you to set a different password. It's not like with Bungie.net or Forza's site where you have one automatically if you have a WLID. Hence I'm wagering a lot of people chose to use the same password for both accounts and that's how people are getting their accounts pinched. It would also explain why this isn't more widespread than it is right now.
