Google Offers Up to $1 Million for Chrome Exploits

Google recently announced up to $1 million in cash awards for anyone who manages to hack the Chrome browser during this year’s CanSecWest conference.

“Google has pledged to pay multiple awards in the amounts of $60,000, $40,000 and $20,000, depending on the severity of the exploits, up to $1 million,” writes Wired’s Kim Zetter. “Winners will also receive a Chromebook.”

“We require each set of exploit bugs to be reliable, fully functional end to end, disjoint, of critical impact, present in the latest versions and genuinely ‘0-day,’ i.e. not known to us or previously shared with third parties,’ Google wrote on its blog,” Zetter writes.
