The Pwn2Own Tokyo is actually coordinated by Zero Day Initiative from Toronto, Canada, and white hat hackers taking part in the competition have to demonstrate their ability to find and exploit vulnerabilities in a broad range of devices.
Let’s start with the only success of day 3 obtained by the STARLabs team targeting the Synology DiskStation DS418Play NAS.
The team of experts exploited a race condition and an OOB Read to get a root shell on the NAS. They earned $20,000 and 2 points towards Master of Pwn.
Day three has seen multiple partial successes, below the details of the attempts:
The only failure of the day was for an attampt of the Team Bugscale targeting the LAN interface on the NETGEAR Nighthawk R7800 router. The team failed in getting their exploit to work within the allotted timeframe.
The Master Pwn winner of Pwn2Own Tokyo is the Team Flashback, Congrats.
