The Final Countdown

Reports must be submitted by September 19th 2016 to be counted towards Hack The World. If you are on the leaderboard, this is a great opportunity to hack like crazy to eek out the lead and win some of the awesome prizes including money, limited edition swag, drones, and more.

Looking at the leaderboard, the competition is all the play for! Just think of the bragging rights if you get crowned as king or queen of your bracket? Let’s make the magic happen.

When September 19th has passed, security teams will then be provided with a month to review reports. On October 20th 2016 we will formally announce the winners!

So, stick some Europe on your Spotify, strap on your HackerOne spandex jump-suit (sold out), and get your reports in!
