Microsoft appears to have temporarily lifted the Xbox Live ban on people who own a modified Xbox 360.
That privilege now seems to have, once more, been revoked.
Why did this happen?
Nobody knows. The popular consensus is that it was a result of Microsoft testing its own security in the wake of the entire PlayStation Network being compromised.
However, some people also suggest it is because Xbox Live, too, has been breached.
The Xbox Live Status page shows only a Service Alert for Matchmaking; Xbox Live, Xbox Live Marketplace and Account are all green-ticked.
Microsoft was unavailable for comment.
