Hackers reportedly leak Xbox One Software Development Kit (SDK)

A full version of Microsoft's official Xbox One software development kit was reportedly leaked by hacking group H4LT (@notHALT), according to an announcement and screenshots made available from the group's official Twitter account.

The apparent public leak of the SDK doesn't mean that everyone with a basis in programming can start launching games and apps on Xbox One — developers aiming to officially release software on the company's consoles must register and be approved by Microsoft before doing so. But with the SDK in the hands of the public, there's the possibility that developers could create homebrew apps and modifications for the console further down the line.

So far, the hacking group says there is no "definite exploit" that could allow developers to bypass this, but it hopes those familiar with Windows 8 can dig into the files to find more information. According to H4LT, the group leaked these files in an effort to allow for "creativity and research" in the community.
