5-year-old exposes Xbox password flaw to Microsoft

A little boy in the US cracks his father’s game account, thus feeding the designer company one big portion of humble pie.

Five-year-old Kristoffer is the clever child who figured out a backdoor way to log into his dad’s X-box Live account. Kristoffer’s father himself works in computer security. He was so excited by his son’s achievement that he whipped out his camera and recorded it all on video to send to Microsoft. When the login screen appears, all Kristoffer has to do is to press the space button several times. The login then would be bypassed without the use of the password. It’s not the first time Kristoffer has outsmarted Microsoft. He’ also figured out how to unlock his dad’s phone without a password.
