Try using a Torx bit which is slightly over sized. Tap it in with a hammer then try loosening.

If you don't think there that tight you can also try Super glue with the right size bit. Take a bit of super glue a decent amount and glue in the bit and then try. Or if you think there going to be a real pain to get out you can try the same thing with JB Weld. Just with JB Weld you can but its a real pain to get the bit out of the bolt.
