Google Chrome Exploit Hacker Wins $60,000 [news.cnet.com]

The winner, Sergey Glazunov, was the first to submit an entry in Google's Pwnium competition to find security exploits in Chrome.

Less than two weeks after Google launched Pwnium, a competition for hackers to find security exploits in Chrome, the search giant has announced its first winner.

Google's Sundar Pichai announced on his Google+ page yesterday that Chromium contributor Sergey Glazunov submitted the first successful entry to the Pwnium contest, revealing a "Full Chrome Exploit" that bypassed the browser's sandboxing security. The exploit makes it possible for a malicious hacker to do just about anything they want on an infected machine.
