Googles offering $20K to the first researcher to successfully exploit its browser @ this years Pwn2Own hacking contest. Aparently it's the biggest reward ever offered for this anual event.

Also the first ones to hack Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari will receive $15K and the machine running the browser they hacked. The prizes are $5,000 more than those given at the last Pwn2Own and three times more than the 2009 awards.


HPTippingPoint’s 5th annual Pwn2Own contest will be held March 9th-11th in Vancouver

One company claimed to have a breach of Google's sandbox. They sell to government and military types. They had no intention of telling Google what the problem was. Assuming it was legit, I wonder if it still works. Google might have found it and corrected it. Either way, they probably made money off it with professional exploit kit + 0day combinations selling for up to a million a year over here.
