(San Diego, CA) -- A young California boy is getting a lot of attention after he discovered a back door to one of the most popular gaming systems in the world. Five-year-old Kristoffer Von Hassel figured out a way to log on to his dad's Xbox Live account and play games he wasn't supposed to be playing. The young gamer found out recently that if he typed in a wrong password for his father's account, it clicked to a password verification screen, and after a few keystrokes, he was in. Microsoft is giving Kristoffer four games, 50-bucks and a year-long subscription to Xbox Live for reporting the flaw.
