What Pwn2own contest is
Pwn2own actually is contest for computer hacking which has been annually held at a conference called CanSecWest since 2007. The participants are encouraged and challenged to exploit the earlier unknown vulnerabilities of those mobile devices and software that are widely used. Its name originates from the fact and act that participants need to hack or ‘pawn’ the device in order to win ‘own’ it. In computing any skilled expert is called ‘hacker’ who uses his extremely high-standard knowledge in order to be able to solve any kind of problem. As a matter of fact this word can refer to those who can program a computer but the term has been related to a security hacker in popular culture; a security hacker who use exploits or bugs to break into other people’s or companies’ computer systems. This contest is about the last meaning because these hackers are extremely talented and well-educated experts who break into software and devices in order to show their weak points.
The aim of the contest
Its most important aim is to demonstrate and emphasize the vulnerabilities of those devices and software that are in use throughout the whole world by discovering and pointing out the weak points of the software and devices so that the manufacturer could develop their security system.
