5-Year-Old Finds Flaw In Xbox Live Security

Kristoffer Von Hassel uncovered a way to log in to his father's Xbox One, without needing the correct password. The 5-year-old would boot the console, go to the verification screen and then hit the space button to log in. One day, his parent's discovered that he was playing restricted games on the Xbox One. Consequently, they contacted the Microsoft team, who then rewarded them with a measly $50 and a yearlong subscription to Xbox Live Gold. The security flaw has since then been rectified.
