Google Chrome Hacker Gets $60,000And a laptop.

Following the recent Pwnium 2 competition, a hacker nicknamed “Pinkie Pie”, has successfully compromised Google’s Chrome web browser and received a free Chromebook and a cash prize of $60,000.

Earlier this year, Pinkie Pie and Sergey Glazunov have also reaped a reward of $60,000, following the successful escape of everyone’s beloved sandbox.

According to the official Chrome blog, the patch was patched immediately and issued in just 10 hours.

Pretty impressive, don’t you think?
