Comments to another forum confirm that Xbox owners in Europe are also seeing accounts banned for having modifications such as flashed firmware on the DVD drive.
It would seem that the move is against those owners whose consoles have been modded to play pirated games and suggests that owners of such modified consoles should not login to Xbox Live until after the Christmas holidays as the cull should be over by then.
I have had my fair share of Xbox 360 hardware problems but have not been tempted into taking my revenge on Microsoft by going down the modded console route. I have to say that I'm glad I have stayed legal now, after all without Xbox Live the 360 is about as much use as a one legged man at an ass kicking party.
