  1. I was individually DDOS'ed by a user.


    Yesterday after playing an online game with friends, someone came in and joined are room who was a friend of a friend. After a few minutes, this person became annoyed because we did not play the game they were hoping(like a child) and then blamed me for
    this. He proceeded to DDOS me and my IP 3-4 times in a row, threatening me with messages via xbox live until I would invite him back into the party that we changed to private. After he gave up on me, he then took someones router completely offline and that
    person had to replace it today.

    This is unacceptable that it is so easy for someone to do this, he has had an account banned prior and I have others that he frequently does these DDOS on anyone who goes against him in anyway online.

    There has to be something that can be done -- I have 10 or so messages on my account proving his attacks on me and also have his realname and username.

    I was suggested to go here and make a post by the XBOX Live call center who was not very helpful.

    [Mod Removed] is the persons username. There has to be something that can be done to stop this person from doing this so frequently. He even got me after I blocked him

    :)

    Hello Ridgeo,

    You can report this as abusive behavior

    Xbox LIVE Profiles and Users

    If you believe that an Xbox LIVE player has violated the Xbox LIVE Code of Conduct, you can file a complaint against that player. To do so, open the player's profile, select File Complaint, and choose the specific reason for the complaint. You may choose
    from the following:

    •Profile: The player's gamertag, personal picture, or personal information contains inappropriate material.

    •Text and Voice Communications: The player used vulgar, hateful, harassing, or threatening language in voice or text communications.

    •Video Communications: The player was vulgar, hateful, harassing, or threatening in video communications.

    •Tampering: The player tampered with a game, an Xbox 360 console, Xbox LIVE, or the feedback system.

    For your situation I would recommend Tampering.

    Information on Abuse can be found here:

    www.xbox.com/.../abuse

    I hope this helps.

    Just to add to what Samael196 said above me, in the future if you are the victim of a DOS or DDOS attack start by reporting the user as instructed above. Then go ahead and unplug your modem/router for a full 5 minutes for an IP refreshing. This will make
    it less likely that the user will be able to attack you again. After doing all of this contact your ISP for further guidance. Some will even open up an investigation towards the responsible party. There is not much Telephone support can do to help you other
    then offer you the steps provided above. DoS and DDoS attacks do not happen in the Xbox Live service. Instead, they happen through the IP address of the attacked device.

    If you have reported them then they will be investigated by the enforcement team

    You have to remember though that ddos attacks are done via your broadband/internet & not xbox live so that is something you will need to contact your isp about as that is down to them to resolve.

    More info on ddos attacks & how to deal with them can be found HERE

    they told me the area i lived in and then said my wifi is gone in the recording. it wasnt a big hit but he some how figured out the area i live in which isnt shown on my profile or at all in fact. i have it recorded.

    this has happened before and the xbox community know about it. people are able to find your ip address by joining a party you are in and through a botnet kicking ur xbox offline for some time.

    Ok first its not always good to confront anyone you do not know on or off xbox. Since you do not know them and they know nothing about you this should not really effect you to much either block them or ignore anything they say. I know for a fact some
    players try to get on your nerves. For one you dont know what impacts their thought process nor would you. I assume this was some type of battle royal or player skilled game. Just block the person choose to report and let xbox handle everything else. And yes
    the process the user didi is not difficult to achieve at all. Remember as I will tell all you do not know the expertise of the individual you are trying to confront. Many individuals these days have hacking and coding experience. I have seen even former developers
    wreck mayhem and destruction (LOL). on an unwary xbox player, so just be aware and that's for everyone. Just because on thinks it may be hard to achieve doesnt mean its not easy for another one thats very skilled or one that just wants to cause harm anyway.
    its sad sometimes but there are some that just have a grudge against everyone and its not your fault there are toxic coders programmers and devs also. Just block and move on. Make sure all your security is up to date if you use a VPN great. Using a good DNS
    will be nice too. Hope everything turns out well, and thanks for being a loyal xbox member for years.
