'Hacking' challenge may not be all that it's cracked up to be

Author: JT Smith

From FairfaxIT: "For the developers, this kind of ploy represents a cheap way of obtaining extensive product testing. Thousands of responses are
received and if any of them is successful, $10,000 is a lot less than you could buy such cracking expertise for on the open market.
So it's not surprising we're seeing others emulate it. Unless it's illegal, of course."
