World renowned search giant Google have announced they would pay up to $1 million in prizes to hackers that can manage to exploit their browser; the Google Chrome at this year’s CanSecWest Security Conference.

Google in a statement on their blog stated, “While we’re proud of Chrome’s leading track record in past competitions, the fact is that not receiving exploits means that it’s harder to learn and improve.

To maximize our chances of receiving exploits this year, we’ve upped the ante. We will directly sponsor up to $1 million worth of rewards in the following categories.”
