Google will be offering up to $2 million in prizes the for the Pwnium 2 contest at the Hack In the Box security conference in Malaysia on October 10. This represents a doubling of the $1 million prize pool from last year where only $120,000 was claimed. A prize of $50,000 will be awarded for exploits that take advantage of code that runs natively on Chrome, while $40,000 will be offered for "non-Chrome exploits." Google is already one of a handful of companies that offers bounties to researchers that report security bugs, with up to $10,000 being given out for severe bugs.
