Hackers earn one million dollars for finding 61 vulnerabilities in mobile devices

MEXICO CITY (apro).- A group of hackers discovered 61 security vulnerabilities in popular mobile devices, and they won a $1 million prize for revealing them.

These devices were hacked twice, including the Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphone during the Pwn2Own contest, which ran from November 2-5 in Austin, Texas, United States.

Organized by the Zero Day Initiative, an event of technology security company Trend Micro, the competition involved cracking ‘smartphones’, which experts did, but hackers discovered 61 vulnerabilities in electronic devices for the first time.
