Microsoft seems to have come out with a cheap, yet effective solution against Xbox modchippers ... put a blob of epoxy onto the chip!
I have to admit to having seen this one coming for a while - it's an easy defense against modchipping consoles. OK, it's far from a perfect and I can see a number of ways around it (want me to list a few ... nah, not here!), but it's enough to discourage many from wanting to mod their systems.
Now if only it was as easy for Microsoft to protect Windows, Office and Internet Explorer from heing hacked as that, we'd all sleep more soundly! Thinking about it, maybe what we need is a blob of epoxy in the Ethernet port and we'd be a lot safer ...
