Xbox hacking is child's play [Sunday Mirror (England)]

(Sunday Mirror (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) A BOY of five has outwitted the sharpest minds at Microsoft by finding a security flaw in the Xbox Live service.

Little Kristoffer Von Hassel's father only realised what had happened when he found the lad playing games he should not have been able to access.

Kristoffer, of San Diego, California, had hacked into his dad's account without the password by hitting the space and enter buttons.




Microsoft has now fixed the flaw, thanked Kristoffer, and listed him on its website as a "security researcher".
