In an interesting move, how is this hurting Microsoft? I think it would rather hurt the users, though obviously it's bad PR for Microsoft, you'd think he could find a better way to hurt those in charge of LIVE than the people who've been using it.

It didn't hurt Sony, it just hurt the 150 million PSN users instead.

Just attempted to login to 5 of those yahoo addresses, all weren't registered. I assume the list is fake. This whole thing is probably fake.

None of my Live accounts are on this list (I have like 8 of them), and none of the credentials I randomly selected off this list work, they all just say "account does not exist".
Also, many of the passwords appear to just be 6 random digits.
I call completely bullshit....

UPDATE: As the news spreads about this 'hack', most experts in the 'hacker world' are saying its a good 'hoax' might be fact.
We will know, and waiting to see what Microsoft saids about it, it all could be hype based on the fact XBOX ONE is in the news!
In the meantime, Cyberwars has dug into the 'hacking' story some more and has this to say, BASICALLY IT IS ALL FAKE!
OK so since posting this i have been tipped off to some interesting points by some people who wish to remain anonymous which lead me to actually dig deeper into this leak.
1st of all as stated above it appears the bayfiles.com site has not been active for some time with no caches or recent DNS information to be found and is not even owned by the same people who own the official bayfiles website which is apart of the piratebay.
2nd when you play with google dorks you find all sorts of things and a interested follower has found that the above bayfiles link is related to a leak from Anonymous back in 2012 which was said to be apart of the OpIsrael hacks and leaks, but sadly this was also fake and was linked back to earlier 2012, possibly even before then but i do not have the time to waste searching over and over/
3rd when i checked this information about the opisrael leak out i have found a few duplicate information from it leading me to believe that @reckz0r has either obtained the original leak file which was named EuroDB.txt and totalled 142MB in its raw text format or was the false claimed opisrael leak which was named Punisment_Hannibal.rar and contained pretty much the exact data from the EruoDB.txt.
4th For some time now many have known that reckz0r has played with false data before, which false data? that i can prove but for now i must not publish anything as my sources would like to remain anonymous but i can say its some one that reckz0r has been in contact with and attempted to or has worked with in the passed who is very credible with information.
5th When i did question reckz0r about this leak, about the bayfiles domain and suspicion of the duplication's and false data i was told "You ask too many questions my friends, are you having those lovely doubts again? and I'll talk to you in a while." (see below)
So yea for now, i advise all other media not to follow this "big leak" and to take it another way, as a false, fake and repeated fake leak from another fake leak which just makes me laugh big time.
