'Hack the Pentagon' program reveals 138 security flaws: US

Hackers invited by the US government as part of a pilot program to find flaws with five Pentagon websites discovered 138 security vulnerabilities, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said. The “Hack the Pentagon” event, the first “bug bounty” in the history of the federal government, attracted 1,410 computer-savvy Americans, according to the Defense Department. “It’s not a small sum, but if we had gone through the normal process of hiring an outside firm to do a security audit and vulnerability assessment, which is what we usually do, it would have cost us more than $1 million,” Carter said during a short ceremony at the Pentagon.
