5 year old acknowledged as Microsoft 'researcher' after hacking Xbox account [Asian News International]

(Asian News International Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Washington, 5 Apr (ANI): Hacking Microsoft's security is not a Child's play, but 5 year old Kristoffer Von Hassel has proved this wrong.

This little genius managed to break tech giant Microsoft's security and entered his dad's Xbox account without a password.


The kid revealed that entering a wrong password several times took users to a password verification screen, in which he just entered spaces and entered, and the magic was done! Microsoft has acknowledged the 5 year old as 'researcher' on its website. Other than that the kid got 4 games, 50 dollars and a yearlong subscription to Xbox Live.(ANI) (c) 2014 aninews.in All rights reserved. Provided by Syndigate.info, an Albawaba.com company
