Google is constantly working to improve its security and one way that they go about doing this is by holding hacking competitions. They turn to the hacking and security community, seeing if they can hack their way through Chrome with a prize pot of over $3 million. And no one could do it.
Well, I guess Google Chrome isn’t impenetrable after all. A total of $1 million in prizes was recently offered by Google to anyone who could exploit the Chrome browser and, for the most part, people failed. That has now changed. At the Google Pwnium hackathon, a Russian university student has been able to hack his way through the cloud OS and earn himself the top prize.
