I just read the article and I can't believe a 5 year old broke MS security.


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

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.


This is the Xbox One board.

would have been funny if PSN was breached by some five year old. not a professional group of hackers.

the hackers did a whole lot more than just get around a log in

Parental controls on one Xbox =/= Xbox Live infrastructure. Then again, I cant blame people for not getting their facts straight if they cannot do simple searches for the dozens of other topics that already exist (or did exist when this was actually news)

Oh thank god the 'security breach' was discovered before legions of unscrupulous...uh...children logged into their parents Live accounts and bought untold amounts of DLC! Since that's about the only thing the flaw would have been useful for.

A hacker would have had to actually come to your house to use your xbox to take advantage of it. It's not exactly Watergate, fanboys.
