DARPA Challenges Hackers to Create Automated Hacking System — WIN $2 Million

DARPA-Cyber-Grand-Challenge-2016Why we can’t detect all security loopholes and patch them before hackers exploit them?
Because… we know that humans are too slow at finding and fixing security bugs, which is why vulnerabilities like Heartbleed, POODLE and GHOST remained undetected for decades and rendered almost half of the Internet vulnerable to theft by the time patches were rolled out.
Now to solve this hurdle, DARPA has come up with an idea: To build a smart Artificial Intelligence System that will automatically detect and even patch security flaws in a system. Isn’t it a revolutionary idea for Internet Security?

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected seven teams of finalists who will face off in a historic battle, as each tries to defend themselves and find out flaws without any human control. The DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge will be held at the annual DEF CON hacking conference in Las Vegas next month.
