9 Years old Boy Demonstrated How to Hack Android Smartphone

A 9-year-old cyber-security expert Reuben Paul has demonstrated how hackers could steal contacts, call logs and messages within just 15 minutes and he even offered to demonstrate on Friday.

On Friday, Harmony School of Science third-grader Reuben Paul took to the stage to promote safer smartphone security. He was the keynote speaker at the conference at the Wingate in Round Rock. The conference aims to make everyone more aware of hackers.
According to Fox, Reuben showed guests the few steps it takes to hack into an Android phone, from an effort to download what looks to be a "real" game.

After taking a quick break he was right back at it. The crowd couldn't believe how easy he made the task look simple. His parents say they knew at the tender age of five , his child was special.

"He'd use the words like "firewall" and things like that and repeat them back to me. First I was totally surprised. I didn't realize a kid would be able to understand and pick up those things," said Mano Paul, Reuben's dad.

At about 15 minutes into the demo , Reuben accomplished his hacking goal.

"Once I got that on, I did a webcam stream, I dumped their contacts, I dumped their call logs, and messages, and I also located where they were."

If that's not scary enough, Reuben says he wants everyone to know, this can happen anywhere, to anyone, at any given time.

"If a child can do it then a regular hacker can do it, which it'll super easy for a regular hacker to do it, so I just want everybody to be aware that be more careful when you download games and stuff like that," said Reuben Paul, CEO of Prudent Games.
