Google offers an impressive prize for hackers who will be able to break the Chrome OS operating system, in the contest “Pwnium 4”.
Chrome OS is comes preinstalled on some devices like precumultrabook, Samsung Chromebook sites etc. It is an operating system developed by Google.
Initially, the prize offered by Google was one million dollars, then increasing the amount of two million, to finally reach $ 3,141,590 – an allusion to the value of “pi”.
Open competition will be held in the contest Pwnium 4, so that everyone can see the working.
It’s unlikely that any single hacker will get the whole pi.
If a hacker managed to compromise the operating system at the browser level or system in guest mode or after authorization when attacking through web-page will win $110,000.
The main prize of $150,000 will receive a hacker who will be able to compromise the Chrome OS from guest to guest mode after a reboot, the attack through web-page.
