Pentest take home $10,000 prize at Pwn2Own Tokyo 2020

Pentest’s Research team recently competed at Pwn2Own Tokyo 2020, one of the world’s largest hacking contests. This iteration of Pwn2Own was based around connected consumer devices and participants had two months in which to find vulnerabilities within a set list of devices/software. Findings would then be submitted to the competition organisers, with the most impressive exploits going through to compete at the live event.

Pentest managed to get through to the live event and on November 6th, successfully demonstrated a working exploit of a Western Digital My Cloud Pro Series PR4100 NAS device, earning Pentest a $10,000 prize.
