Major Nelson's account hacked

Microsoft exec and blogger targeted.

Microsoft exec and Xbox Live mouthpiece Major Nelson, a.k.a. Larry Hryb, had his account hacked at the weekend.

As reported by Kotaku, LiGHTzz.com claimed the hack and posted a foul-mouthed YouTube video showing they had control of the account.

Messages were posted on Hryb's account such as the hacker's Skype name, "Any account $100 PayPal!!!!!!!!" and "I'm a f****t".

It seems the issue's been resolved, though. "A fun last night at PAX East! Thanks to everyone who has asked, but my account it now fine," Major Nelson posted on his Twitter.
