Seen this on the evening news. This is becoming known everywhere, just more bad PR for the xboxone.

It's Microsoft they're not exactly known for their good security measures.

Wow, Microsoft hooked that kid up with a lot of free stuff! All for just finding a minor bug. Good for him! That was awesome of Microsoft to do something like that for a fan. It seems like every day people are getting free things from Microsoft. Just yesterday some guy was on here talking about the free week of Xbox Live he got just for having problems connecting for a few hours. You gotta love the great customer service.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned the real news though - did any of you know a five year old exposed a log-in bug?

That's nothing compared what it would had cost them, free membership? it's free money for MS so it cost nothing giving one year for free, it should had been lifetime.

How many free games did Sony send out to the people who's identity was stolen? I know that's not as severe as a 5yr old logging into his father's video game profile, but surely Sony gave them something for such a minor security breach.
