Do you consider yourself a great hacker? If yes, you might just win one million dollars from Apple, provided you prove them wrong. In a quick turn of events, Apple is now offering one million dollars to people who can hack into their products and let the company know how they managed to pull it off.
Apple is known for its bounty program for hackers. During their initial days, they would release a list of hackers who could participate in the program. The prize money was a lot less too. But now, the tech giant is offering five times the normal payout and has opened the floor to all. The hackers will have to give a detailed description of how they managed to hack their iOS though.
While Apple’s move is quite beneficial to hackers, it’s a way of preventing future hack of any sorts. So for them, spending one million today will save a lot more later. It’s the only way they can protect their closed system.
So if you’re game, get working. You might just be the next celebrity hacker with one million in your account.
