It’s an unfortunate day to be an xbox owner, for there has been several reports that a hack is deleting characters through Xbox Live. Luckily, PC and PS3 owners haven’t yet been afflicted by this hack.
“Users have begun violating the Xbox Live Code of Conduct by using an external application to maliciously disrupt the experience and sabotage characters of legitimate Borderlands 2 players on Xbox 360,” Gearbox Studios community manager Chris Faylor said in a post on the developer’s official forums.
Gearbox has announced that they’ve submitted a patch that will deal with this problem. Until Microsoft approves it, they’ve recommended that you don’t play with random people online.
