Child, 5, finds way to [...] [Sunday Mercury (England)]

(Sunday Mercury (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Child, 5, finds way to breach Xbox account A FIVE-year-old San Diego boy outwitted software developer Microsoft after finding a security breach in Xbox video game accounts.

Kristoffer Von Hassel managed to log in to his father's Xbox Live account by simply hitting the space button a few times and hit enter.

Robert Davies said that just after Christmas he noticed his son playing games he supposedly could not access.


Mr Davies said he reported the issue to Microsoft, which fixed the bug and listed Kristoffer on its website as a "security researcher".
