    Chinese security researchers were able to successfully discover zero-day vulnerabilities in Chrome, Edge, Safari, Office 365, qemu-kvm + Ubuntu and more at a recently held hacking competition in the city of Chengdu in China. Learn more in an interesting TechWorm article:

    The hacking contest held over last weekend – November 16 and 17 – saw China’s top hackers take part in the Tianfu Cup 2019 International Cyber Security Competition – the country’s top hacking competition – to test some of the world’s most popular applications.

    For those unaware, prior to 2018, Chinese experts had successfully dominated Pwn2Own, the world’s largest hacking contest, by winning the competition years in a row.
