San Diego Five year old beats Microsoft's XBox Live Security


According to CNET, 5 year old Kristoffer Von Hassel's parents recently noticed that he was playing games on the XBox that he wasn't supposed to have access to. It turns out that Kristoffer had figured out that by hitting the space bar a few times and hitting enter, he could bypass Xbox live security.

The boy's father Robert Davies, is employed in computer security and reported the problem to Microsoft. XBox's manufacturers rewarded the boy with 4 games, a gift certificate and currently lists Kristoffer as a "security researcher" (which is a nice resume builder for a 5 year old).
