CanSecWest Security Conference Offers MacBook Pros to Anyone Who Can Exploit Them


We’ve announced that we will be having a contest “PWN to OWN” where two, pimp, loaded up, Apple Macbook Pro’s will be set up on their own AP (with security updates but otherwise default) and attendees will be able to connect to the ethernet or WiFi. The first to exploit it (there are victory conditions, and progressive rules over the three days) gets to go home with it. (Limit one per person, Can’t use the same vuln on both.) If they survive the three days in the “jungle,” they become prizes for best lightning talk and best speaker. Detailed contest rules to follow shortly.

(Thanks to Chris Pepper.)
