A five-year-old boy has been praised by Microsoft after he found a flaw in the Xbox security system.

Kristoffer Von Hassel, from San Diego, managed to hack into his father’s Xbox Live account without having to put in the correct password.

When the login screen appeared, all Kristoffer had to do was press the space button several times.

By doing so, he managed to get in by the back door without needing to use the password.

The child’s father, Robert Davies, who works in computer security, was so proud he recorded a video of the process which he sent to Microsoft.

Xbox has listed the child on its website as a “security researcher” The security team at Microsoft quickly fixed the bug and put Kristoffer’s name on the Xbox website, listing him as a “security researcher”. When he saw his name online, Kristoffer said: “I’m gonna be famous!”

It is not the first time he has outwitted technology. When he was a one-year-old, he figured out how to unlock his father’s phone by holding down the ‘Home’ button.
