A Live Hacking Event is a competition in which ethical hackers compete for prestige and prizes by unearthing vulnerabilities in digital assets such as applications, devices and connected cars.
These Live Bug Bounties typically last 1-2 days, involve dozens of participants, and can be held virtually or in person. Participants hack against the clock to find vulnerabilities and bug chains of the greatest possible severity, in pursuit of financial rewards and points that propel them up the leaderboard – and perhaps to a place on the final podium.
Collaboration and the adrenalin of live competition inspire our finest hunters to even greater heights. Crucially, it’s also a chance for organisations to meet and learn from the world’s most accomplished security researchers. YesWeHack can advise you on the feasibility of a Live Hacking Event, assist with planning events and help you handpick the right hunters for your scopes.
Critical vulnerabilities and devastating bug chains are routinely surfaced among dozens of vulnerabilities in just one or two days.
The world’s best hunters, motivated by camaraderie, bounties and a desire to top the leaderboard, can reliably produce a bug bonanza.
