Get Paid Cash To Hack Chrome



Google are offering a cool $1 million (£633,000) to anyone who is able to hack the Chrome browser and show Google how it was done by highlighting the problems with the browser.


They have called the competition Pwnium and in order to be in with a chance to grab the cash and run, you are going to need to get to the CanSecWest security conference, which is being held at the Sheraton Wall Centre hotel in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia starting on the 7th March.



According the posting on the Chromium Blog by Chris Evans and Justin Schuh, from the Google Chrome Security Team;


While we’re proud of Chrome’s leading track record in past competitions, the fact is that not receiving exploits means that it’s harder to learn and improve. To maximize our chances of receiving exploits this year, we’ve upped the ante. We will directly sponsor up to $1 million worth of rewards in the following categories: Full Chrome exploit, Partial Chrome exploit and Consolation reward, Flash / Windows / other.
