The parents of Kristoffer Von Hassel, from Ocean Beach in San Diego, California, noticed after Christmas that the talented tot had broken into the account without knowing the password – allowing him to cheekily play games for adults that he wasn't supposed to touch.
The kid managed it by tapping in a wrong password at the console's login prompt, navigating to a password verification screen, and filling the password box with space characters before hitting the submit button. After that, the door was open.
