Pwn2Own 2018 Expands Targets and Raises Prize Pool to $2M

The 2017 event was the first in which Linux technologies were specifically targeted and they’ll be back on the list for 2018. Among the 2018 targets is the open-source Apache web server running on an Ubuntu 17.10 Linux distribution. Apache is joined this year for the first time with the open-source Nginx web server as well. A successful exploit of either Apache or Nginx will yield a $100,000 award.
