Xbox Under Attack, Multiple Accounts Have Been Hijacked To Purchase FIFA 11/12

Xbox Live is under attack by thieves who appear to have an undying love of EA's FIFA series. An alarming number of gamers have apparently reported that their Xbox Live accounts have been hijacked and used to purchase hundreds of dollars worth of FIFA 11 and 12 content. According to Ars Technica, gamers are experiencing a strangely specific ordeal; their accounts are hijacked, then used to purchase FIFA 11/12 and thousands of MS Points spent on in-game content for the footy sims.
Microsoft claims that Xbox Live has not been compromised, but says it's dealing with complaints of unauthorised transactions directly.
Here's the full statement issued to Ars:-
"We do not have any evidence the Xbox LIVE service has been compromised. We take the security of our service seriously and work on an ongoing basis to improve it against evolving threats. However, a limited number of members have contacted us regarding unauthorized access to their accounts by outside individuals. We are working with our impacted members directly to resolve any unauthorized changes to their accounts.
