A hacking competition is offering almost $1 million in prizes (£770,000) to encourage hackers to find security issues with the Tesla Model 3 car.
The Pwn2Own security conference partnered with the electric car maker to offer researchers the chance to win prizes ranging from $35,000 to $250,000 for finding vulnerabilities with the Model 3’s software.
“Since 2007, Pwn2Own has become an industry-leading contest that encourages new areas of vulnerability research on today’s most critical platforms, said senior director of vulnerability research for cuber security firm Trend Micro.
Tesla actively encourages security researchers to find vulnerabilities in its software, offering between $100 and $15,000 to anyone who comes across a previously-unreported bug
Tesla values the work done by security researchers in improving the security of our products and service offerings,” the car maker states on its website.
