Hi guys,

Would you like a free Tesla and US$600,000? Well, all you have to do is hack into a Tesla, and it is all yours 🙂

The next Pwn2Own hacking event will be in Vancouver, Canada, from the 22nd to 24 March this year and at this year’s event, there will be two Teslas on offer to hack, a Model 3 and a Model S, with the winner walking away with US$600,000 in prize money as well as the car that they hacked.

“Tesla vehicles are equipped with multiple layers of security,” said a Pwn2Own spokesperson, “and for this year’s event, there are multiple tiers of awards within the automotive category that corresponds to some of the different layers of security within a Tesla car.”

Here is the list of major categories that hackers can take a crack (or a hack!) at:

  • Virtualisation
  • Web Browser
  • Enterprise Applications
  • Server
  • Local Escalation of Privilege
  • Enterprise Communications
  • Automotive

You can find full details of the event at the official website here, including how to sign up if you want to try cool hacks on the other side of the planet.

Let me know how you get on. Happy hacking!!
