PWN2OWN - hack the Big Four browsers in public and go home with half a million dollars

PWN2OWN - hack the Big Four browsers in public and go home with half a million dollars | Libertés Numériques | Scoop.it

There are six weeks to go until the CanSecWest 2013conference.

As the name suggests, it takes place at the left-hand end of Canada (left, at least, left on a traditional North-aligned map), in the delightful waterside city of Vancouver, British Columbia.

CanSecWest has become famous - notorious, even - for the hacking competition that takes place there: PWN2OWN.

The concept is simple: pwn a fully-patched browser running on a fully patched laptop (in other words, own it figuratively) and you get to keep the laptop (that is, to own it quite literally).
