Google has once again offered a challenge for hackers across the world, and it sounds like a contest that proud hackers may not easily refuse. The offer: up to one million dollars to anyone able to successfully hack and exploit bugs in the Google Chrome browser. Google is very confident in its product that they are willing to put a large cash prize on the line to anyone that can bring Chromeâ€™s flaws to their attention.
Googleâ€™s Pwnium contest which is being held at the same time as Pwn2Own, has several prizes for individual hackers, depending on the bug or bugs that the hacker finds. Chromeâ€™s bug doesnâ€™t have to be found in a product that would only affect Google Chrome â€” any hacker that can successfully find a bug or exploit in Windows, Flash, or a device driver, Google will pay them $20,000 for their efforts. For any hacks that specifically target Google Chrome, Google will shuffle out $40,000. Finally, for any exploits that affect only Google Chrome, Google will pay a minimum of $60,000. Depending on the severity of the exploit, Google will increase the payout, leading up to the one million dollar prize.
