Google scrubs Pwnium hack contest

Gregg Keizer | Feb. 26, 2015
Shutters annual cash prize challenge, shifts money to long-standing bug bounty programme.

Rather than back out completely, Google launched Pwnium, which also ran during CanSecWest.

Google will remain a sponsor of this year's Pwn2Own; its Project Zero team will not only help pay for the contest's prizes, but separately will award up to $10,000 for entries that successfully exploit the latest release of Chrome 42.

HP TippingPoint did not immediately reply to a request for comment on Google's decision to scrap Pwnium.

Pwn2Own will take place March 18-19, with $465,000 in awards up for grabs.
