    Well I dont think they "hack" it, but I think they get your password for your email.

    Most people who threaten to hack your account, even if they can, probably won't bother to do it. And there are ways of stealing your account yes.

    People can indeed "hack" other peoples accounts by a process referred to as social engineering. If you don't know what social engineering is then wiki it.

    Most people who say they are going to "hack" your account cant do anything, they are probably just ****ing with you

    Just dont give people your account info and dont have simple passwords (such as your GT) and you will be fine

    You cannot get hacked on xbox live. Only phished. If you do not give out your log in info to ANYONE your account will be safe.
