Google offers $20,000 for Chrome hack

Posted on Saturday, February 05 2011 @ 08:45:33 CET by


Neowin reports Google is offering a $20,000 bounty to anyone able to successfully hack their Chrome browser at the Pwn2Own hacking event in Vancouver.
Pwn2Own, the annual hacking contest, is due to kick off in Vancouver on March 9th and Google are looking to make things interesting by offering $20,000 anyone able to successfully hack their browser. That's $5,000 more than is being offered by the other browsers due to go through their paces at the event.

Researchers will pit exploits against machines running either Windows 7 or Mac OS X as they try to bring down Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Mozilla's Firefox, Apple's Safari and Chrome.

The first researchers to hack IE, Firefox and Safari will receive $15,000 and the laptop running the browser. The prizes are $5,000 more than those given for exploiting browsers at the last Pwn2Own contest, and three times more than the 2009 awards.
