Google: we'll pay $100,000 if you can hack a Chromebook remotely
"Google has put up a $100,000 reward for anyone who can find a way to hack its Chromebook over the web.
The move doubles last year's top reward of $50,000, available exclusively for attacks that achieve a persistent compromise on a Chromebook in 'guest mode', meaning the attacker's code sticks around on the device even after a reboot and affects subsequent guest-mode sessions.
In the context of a Chromebook, guest mode is a locked-down state designed to support device sharing, which protects the owner's Chrome profile from tampering and is meant to ensure browser data and cookies vanish at the end of a session.
But as Google outlined on Monday, in the year since it dangled the $50,000 Chromebook reward under its Chrome Reward Program, it hasn't received a single successful submission.”
