Sergey Glazunov, A Security Researcher Earn $60,000 At Pwnium After Google Chrome Hack

Sergey Glazunov, a Russian security researcher has earned $60,000 by demonstrating how he could waltz past the security sandbox in Google's Chrome browser to run unauthorized code on fully-patched Windows 7 computers. Glazunov discovered a remote code execution vulnerability in Chrome, that could be used by malicious hackers and cyber criminals to install and run code on innocent users' computers, just by them visiting a website. Glazunov, who is no stranger to reporting bugs in Chrome, won his substantial reward as part of the Pwnium competition run by Google at the CanSecWest conference in downtown Vancouver.
Senior Vice President of Google Chrome and Apps, Sundar Pichai, confirmed the successful hack on his Google+ page. Now that the hack is known throughout the developer world, Pichai understandably said, “Congrats to long-time Chromium contributor Sergey Glazunov who just submitted our first Pwnium entry. Looks like it qualifies as a “Full Chrome” exploit, qualifying for a $60k reward. We’re working fast on a fix that we’ll push via auto-update. This is exciting; we launched Pwnium this year to encourage the security community to submit exploits for us to help make the web safer. We look forward to any additional submissions to make Chrome even stronger for our users.”
