    Master of Pwn

    Master of Pwn

    The Zero Day Initiative runs a hacker contest called Pwn2Own. The contest calls the best hackers in the world to demonstrate they can hack into software that should be secure. Like browsers, phones, and even cars. A lot of vulnerabilities are discovered from this event which means vendors must fix them. Whoever can demonstrate the most vulnerabilities will be crowned the “Master of Pwn”.
    Thanks to Dustin Childs and Brian Gorenc from ZDI to hear all about Pwn2Own.
    Thanks to Radek and Pedro for sharing their experiences of becoming the Masters of Pwn.
