HACK google chrome for 20K... - February 3, 2011, 12:17 PM

Google Bets That Chrome Cannot Be Hacked-for $20,000 - Gearlog




Google is taking a risk in light of the recent news about the new Internet Explorer bug. The company is placing a bet with computer hackers that they cannot hack into the Chrome browser. If they prove Google wrong they win $20,000.00 and a brand new CR-48 Chrome OS notebook. The contest is called Pwn2Own. It will take place on March 9th through the 11th.
Google appears to believe that the Chrome browser will not be hacked into, but is willing to take the risk to drive home their point. This is the first time ever that any software company has placed a bet and target on their own product. Also, around the same time of this contest, TippingPoint will also host other hacker contest for different devices and other browsers.
I have to say that I am not sure that Google is making the right choice here. In light of the IE bug, why draw attention to your own browser? Also, I am sure Chrome can be hacked into simply because they have had viruses attack the browser before. After all, if you claim something cannot happen it usually does end up happening to you at some point.

IIRC, google has done bounties before, and their reward amount is typically "per vulnerability"

They paid out a lot for android, to many users, as i recall.

Smart move. Pay the hackers to beat the shit out of your product and show you its vunerabilities before they become a real issue out in the field and you have to run around like a chicken w/your head cut off with a team of engineers trying to find a patch.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

A lot cheaper than hiring testers, that's for sure.

Funny how Microsoft used to do this on the regular in the late 90's and early 00's, the pay out's must have been cutting into the ass loads of money they strip out of pockets with every license they produce.

I give credit to the guys that accomplish this. Going through dissassembly trying to overwrite memory and inject opcode is the most tedious task I can think of.

it's more like "tell us where we screwed up and we'll give you $20k"
