As of right now (November 10, 2009), nothing is safe. DO NOT flash your drive until iXtreme LT is released (ETA- a month or 2). I'm warning you, there is a VERY high risk of you being perma-banned from Xbox Live.

So far 600,000 have been banned.

You could possibly be safe. I'd lay low if I were you though.

Personally I wouldn't play any games at all. That may be overkill, But having a console ban is a pain in the ***. If you've been playing MW2 or some other game and are still safe, I guess it'd be reasonable to say you can keep playing it. But beware, the bans aren't done yet. They are shooting for 1,000,000.

why would they make a goal # of bans? Instead of working their tits off banning consoles and then celebrating because they banned kids smarter then them, why don't they just prevent it from being done in the future?

If you do this then you will not get achievements for you profile. If you do get any on your banned console then your profile will be corrupt when you connect to live on your good console.

That is not M$. hey are looking for people to flash their boxes, get banned, run to store, and flash again.
This is a deadly cycle and all M$ sees is $$$
