Google bets $20K that Chrome can’t be hacked

It’s not $20k to bet against themselves, it’s $20k paid for keen hackers to fix their browser’s security further with PR to fuel the fire of interest.Google logo

Google will pay $20,000 to the first researcher who successfully exploits its Chrome browser at this year’s Pwn2Own hacking contest.

The award is the largest ever for the annual challenge, which will kick off for the fifth time at the CanSecWest security conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, on March 9.

At this year’s Pwn2Own, researchers will pit exploits against machines running Windows 7 or Mac OS X as they try to bring down Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Mozilla’s Firefox, Apple’s Safari and Chrome.
