“Hack the Pentagon” – is the latest trend among hackers worldwide. A great challenge from the US Department of Defense (DoD) to hackers with a price of course. This is the first Cyber bug bounty program implemented to find bugs, loopholes on their system.
The program will begin on April 2016 you better find a good bug because depending on the bug/loophole found you will get a cash reward. The greater risk to the system the better reward and public recognition you will get says the DoD.
The announcement was made last November and set to implement by April.
