Microsoft Exec hacked: Major Nelson responds on Twitter

Major Nelson has responded on Twitter, following the events over the weekend which saw his Xbox Live profile hacked and GamerTag modified to display some not very friendly comments.

As reported from VG247, hackers temporarily gained access to his account, altering various details about him and then posted a video of it on YouTube.

The guys who performed the action were not too bothered about revealing their identity – so it shouldnt take long for Microsoft to catch the people responsible.

Nelson has since replied on Twitter with the following message: “A fun last night at PAX East! Thanks to everyone who has asked, but my account it now fine. Thx to @Stepto and team who are investigating.”

There is always a few who have to spoil it, eh? Let us know your thoughts on this.
