Hackers Target Marines for Pentagon’s Latest Bug Bounty
A live hacking event in Las Vegas is targeting the Marine Corps in the Pentagon’s latest bug bounty program. Around 100 hackers were selected to identify vulnerabilities in the Corps’ primary communications network. Over the nine-hour event, hackers found 75 vulnerabilities and won $80,000 in bounties. “Working with the ethical hacker community provides us with a large return on investment to identify and mitigate current critical vulnerabilities, reduce attack surfaces and minimize future vulnerabilities,” said the leader of the Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace Command.
