Google offering $20,000 for Chrome sandbox exploit
Google is offering a $20,000 cash prize for any hacker who can successfully compromise a Windows 7 machine via a vulnerability — and sandbox escape — in its Chrome web browser.
The prize is part of this year’s CanSecWest Pwn2Own contest, which will pit some of the world’s best security researchers and exploit writers against popular web browsers and mobile devices. During last year’s contest, Google Chrome was the only browser left standing but with the enhanced cash prize — and publicity that goes along with a successful Chrome netbook hack — there is a strong likelihood that someone will take aim at Chrome this year.
