Amazing : Project Zero — Google Is Giving Exact $200,000 Prize For Hacking Android OS

Google has launched a new hacking contest named The Project Zero Prize. This contest aims at safeguarding the Android operating system by discovering critical bugs. It’s important to note that only the exploits that hack Android phones remotely using victim’s phone number or email address are eligible. The first prize winner of the contest will grab a prize of $200,000.

Technology giants are known for running bug hunting programs that promise to reward the security researchers. However, despite these reward programs, many unique and critical bugs are discovered at different hacking contests.

 The first prize winner of this contest will earn a hefty sum of $200,000, followed by the second prize winner who will get $100,000. The third prize of $50,000 will be awarded to additional winning entries.

The contest winners will also be invited to write an entry on Google’s Project Zero Blog.

The Android exploits that successfully target Android Nougat on Nexus 5X and 6P are eligible for the contest.

Here’s what Google has to say more about the rules:

“Only the first person to file a bug can use it as a part of their submission, so file early and file often! Of course, any bugs that don’t end up being used in a submission will be considered for Android Security Rewards and any other rewards program at Google they might be eligible for after the contest has ended.”
