Pentagon expands white-hat hacker challenge to all comers

The Defense Department undertook a significant expansion of its new crowdsourced approach to cybersecurity Monday, opening its “Hack the Pentagon” challenge to literally anyone and providing them a legal route to report any security holes they find.

The program differs somewhat from other ongoing hacking challenges in which the Defense Department offered bounties to groups of pre-vetted white hat hackers in penetration tests against specific DoD systems.
