10 year old girl hacker details exploit in mobile games

By , ITworld |  Data Center, hacker

Not to be a hater, but this could be a hoax. Young CyFi, name withheld because of her tender young age, sounds too good to be true. She supposedly performed an improvised, 10-minute long spoken word piece for an audience of 1,000 at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and is a start-ranked downhill skier. Would they give out those kinds of details if they really wanted to keep her identity a secret? Maybe, but I have some dubiousity about this story.

Real or "heightened reality," the story has made some big news. Opinions on cute girl hackers always include some doozies. Another cute/disturbing fact: DefCon Kids was started to accommodate all the DefCon hackers now with families.

Way to go, baby hacker

But could you think of something like that when you were 10 years old? Wrong_Number on cnet.com

Changing the clock, no. Repeatedly changing the clock in small increments so as to circumvent a programmatic method implemented to stop the abuse, yes. Just because it is simple doesn't mean it isn't a hack. In fact, if you go all the way back to the earliest definition as in "an elegant hack" the simpler and more obvious but not thought of, the better. Tom 13 on theregister.co.uk

This girl, is a hacker, in the traditional, responsible, good sense of the word, and she deserves the acknowledgement. Snowkestrel on dvice.com

That's a newsworthy hack?

How is this anything new???? Changing the system clock to trick programs??? aussieghump on cnet.com

I was impressed until I read the detail and realised that I'm sure I did similar things to this in the days when software came with 30 day trials. Ian Yates on theregister.co.uk

This was the first time someone has talked about this. Nope. It is listed as one of the cheats for "Zombie Farm".
