Google Challenges Hackers

Google is so sure of its Chrome web browser it has offered a large cash prize to the first person to successfully hack through the browser’s security. The tech company will offer $20,000 and a laptop to the first person who hack the browser at the upcoming Pwn2Own hacking competition. Contestants will use Windows 7 or Mac OS X software to search for security holes in the Google Chrome browser. To take home the prizes, the successful hacker will have to “find and exploit into two vulnerabilities in its code.” This is the largest cash prize ever offered at the Pwn2Own competition which is held as part of the CanSecWest security conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, on March 9. Other browsers, such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Mozilla's Firefox and Apple's Safari, have offered $15,000 to successful hackers. [Daily Mail]

You heard it right, people. Former 2 Live Crew member Luke "Uncle Luke" Campbell has announced that he will be running for Mayor of Miami Dade. In a recent Miami New Times column, Luke stated: "I've thought about running for public office before, but someone would always end up talking me out of it, saying, 'We have this good person here, he will do good for the community,' so I always backed out…I go to Miami International Airport and see the same construction that has been going on for like a hundred years. All of that frustrates the hell out of me. Why aren't we getting it right in Miami-Dade? Why is our government only serving one set of people? That's what is pushing me to run." This is the most ridiculous news I’ve heard in quite some time. [Rap Radar]
