M$ invite hackers, up to $100,000 reward
« on: May 07, 2020, 02:00:15 am »
Came across this article: https://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-to-hackers-break-our-azure-sphere-linux-iot-os-and-earn-up-to-100k/

It amused, then reminded me of how Apple, borrowed the Unix code to form their multiple zillion empire. Then file patent breaches, against Unix. Hey ho..!

regards cavy    :D

Reporting Bill Gates as the penultimate hacker is probably not going to win me that prize...

The problem I find here is that it's a mixture of Linux and Winders, so the only vulnerabilities they'll find is on Winders side of the programming. Beggars belief though that Linux and Winders working together? Though Microplop did spend an awful lot of money to get a seat on the board of directors of Linux foundation.  :D
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
