Let me assume your five year old is a son (merely to avoid to much s/he
Pitty you didn't tell how he cracked to security. Did he do it by accident
or was it a goal he had set himself to?
I wonder if five year old can solve the problems that people at a mostly
technical and possibly very dangerous frontier have to face. Merely being
able to follow options that do present themselves (ie. buttons on a window)
is not enough.


P.S. I may have downsized the abilities of your kid since I haven't seen
him in action, nor have you given me more clues to make my hypothesis.
