According to a 12 year old on twitter, Xbox Live has been hacked. A small dump of ~15,000 emails and passwords was dumped on http://pastebin.com/zEjieFtr, and there is a link in that that links to 'bayfiles.com' (http://www.bayfiles....ve_Owned.tar.gz), which is registered but hasn't been 'up' for ages. Sounds like just a script kiddie trying to get attention.

Unlikely, as this -hacker- would also know this means that Hotmail and every other MS service was hacked, they all share the same authentication.

So xbox live got hacked and judging by that list 99% of the emails are @yahoo.com?

Some of the passwords are also exactly the same too...

For example: 393973 is used 23 times.

Then there are emails that are the same too:

For example: there seems to be 9 retekumer7@***.com. All with different passwords and some with different domains.

This thing screams fake.
