Pwn2Own is a computer hacking contest held annually by Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative - ZDI. Contestants are challenged to exploit widely used software and mobile devices with previously unknown vulnerabilities. Winners of the contest receive the device that they exploited and a cash prize. The total prize for each contest is up to millions of dollars.
The 2020 fall edition of Pwn2Own (Pwn2Own Tokyo) was held from 05 November in a virtual format due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has limited many contestants’ traveling operations.
