Look out world, here comes Kristoffer Von Hassel! The 5-year old outsmarted tech gurus at Microsoft, finding a backdoor way into its popular Xbox Live.

Kristoffer’s dad, Robert Davies noticed that he was logged in, and playing games that he wasn’t supposed to be playing. The boy had discovered a simple way around Microsoft’s password security, which only took a few keystrokes.

Davies and his son reported the security to flaw to Microsoft, and a patch has since been issued. Kristoffer received $50, four games, a one-year subscription to Xbox Live, and and an acknowledgement on Microsoft’s website.
