Submission + - Google Pledges Pi Million Dollars in Pwnium 3 Prizes (securityledger.com)

chicksdaddy writes: "Google cemented its reputation as the squarest company around Monday (pun intended), offering prizes totaling Pi Million Dollars — that's right: $3.14159 million greenbacks — in its third annual Pwnium hacking contest, to be held at the CanSecWest conference on March 7 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Google will pay $110,000 for a browser or system level compromise delivered via a web page to a Chrome user in guest mode or logged in. The company will pay $150,000 for any compromise that delivers "device persistence" delivered via a web page, the company announced on the chromium blog.

"We believe these larger rewards reflect the additional challenge involved with tackling the security defenses of Chrome OS, compared to traditional operating systems," wrote Chris Evans of Google's Security Team."
