Five year old boy hacks into his dad’s xbox live account

9492165_600x338Earlier this week a young five year old boy from San Diego managed to hack into his fathers xbox live account exposing a large security gap in microsoft’s popular gaming platform. Accessing his account was not hard at all, he simply had to type spaces in the place of his fathers password in order to gain access. His father noticed that his son had been doing something suspicious when he saw him playing games that he shouldn’t have been able to access. He then asked his son to show him how he was getting into his account and his son gladly did. After that father and son reported the bug to microsoft. They responded by giving him a one year free membership to xbox live, four new games and $50.
