To be sure he does not hack your account just change your password to something very secure. It is impossible for him to hack it without knowing the password unless somehow he has already obtained it. To change your password just go to the link I will give you in a second here. Before you go though please rate my answer 4 thumbs up, I would be forever grateful if you could do so. Here is what you need to do to change your password:

  1. On your Xbox 360 console, go to My Xbox and select your avatar.
  2. Select Manage Account. Note If you select an offline profile or if you are not connected to the Internet, Manage Account is not available and you cannot continue.
  3. Select Windows Live ID.
  4. Select Change Password.
  5. Enter your current password, enter your new password twice, and then select Change Now. If you want to store the password on the console so it can be used to log on to other Windows Live services (such as Windows Live Messenger), select Yes when you are prompted to do so.

Download your Xbox Live profile
You might want to download your Xbox Live gamer profile in the following situations:
  • You want to use your Xbox Live gamertag on another console.
  • You have a Zune, Games for Windows, or Windows 8 Microsoft account (download your existing account instead of creating a new account).
  • You accidentally deleted your Xbox Live gamertag from your console.
You can download your Xbox Live gamertag to any console. Here's how:
  1. Press the Xbox Guide button on your controller (large X button in the center of your controller).
  2. Select Download Profile.
  3. Note Not seeing Download Profile? Press X to sign out of your profile.
  4. Enter the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox Live gamertag. If you don't know your Microsoft account or password, see Find your Microsoft account or password.Note "Microsoft account" is the new name for what used to be called "Windows Live ID." It's the email address and password you use to sign in to Microsoft services (including Xbox Live). Find out more.
  5. Now, enter your Microsoft account password.Note If your account is an Xbox Live child account, the parent's Microsoft account information is required to download the profile.
  6. Select the storage device for your profile (for example, Hard Drive).
  7. Your profile will begin downloading. Once your profile is downloaded, you can choose whether or not you want to require your Microsoft account password to sign into your profile.

My brother got his xbox 360 profile hacked by a hacking clan he gave his password to them looking for a 15th on call of duty black ops by F3AR FAKIE ALL CAPS

You need to contact Xbox Live Support asap and let them know what happened. They will help you get the account back under your control.

When you call be sure you have
  • Your gamertag
  • Your password
  • Your answer to your security question
  • Your Xbox on and I front of you
When you get a hold of someone be sure to write down the reference number they give you.

Here's some more contact info for Xbox Live

Also, if there is a credit/debit card associated with the account be sure to watch for unwanted charges and let Xbox Live know if any arise. They'll most likely advise you to call your bank to hold the charges.

I wish you luck.

                    Have you tried to recover it through your xbox 360? Create a new profile(Non XBL) and select recover old gamertag. It should get it back with all the achievements, but the saves wont work untill transferred to the new profile.

                    Recovring gamertag problem

                    Corrupt File (microsoft cant let you recover gamertag due to mods hacks and such) that is possibly what has happened. You downloaded a corrupt file and now microsoft has found something wrong. You can no only make a new gamertag and ask for free xbox live for compensation. (you might get it)

                    You will have to purchase a subscription code
                    I'm not sure if you can get them at retail stores, but they are available on Ebay. Don't get the ones that state theya re for xbox live gold membership.
                    You can also get the xbox live starter pack which includes 3 months xbox live and a headset (that is if you can still find them, again ebay is a great starting place)
                    That's how I did it.
                    Happy gaming
