Did you know that Microsoft Xbox one sells bigger than Sony Playstation 4? This means that Xbox One is the most popular gaming console on the planet. We’ve got some funny news about the world’s best gaming console: an Xbox One security flaw was discovered this week… by a 5-year old boy in San Diego, California.
Xbox One Security Flaw
It appears that Microsoft is lucky to have smart and fair consumers. A five-year old boy, named Kristoffer Von Hassel, managed to discover an Xbox One security flaw while playing on the Xbox. He pressed some random buttons which allowed him to log into his father Xbox account.
His father, Richard Davies, noticed that his son was playing games he wasn’t supposed to while logged in his Xbox Live account. The little boy feared that his Xbox would be taken away from him if he continued to play games that were off-limits, so when his father confronted him, he admitted he had logged into his account and even showed his father how he did it.
Apparently, when he was prompted for a password, Kristoffer would enter spaces and then hit enter, which managed to gain him access to his father’s Xbox Live account.
When the little boy was interviewed about his reaction when he first saw that he had unrestricted access to Xbox Live, he said I was like, yeah!, which is the perfect reaction for a 5-year old child gaining unlimited access to something had been previously banned from.
After the child showed his father the Xbox One security flaw, Richard Davies filed a report to Microsoft and they thanked the child and father, and then fixed the issue.
