Hackers are using a new game on the popular game website to take advantage of an Apple vulnerability that could let them get into a locked Apple device.
A new Hackathon in Kenya is getting underway on Thursday, and it’s set to be a fun, interactive hackathon that includes live video, interactive puzzles, and a free RoboX game.
“We are hoping to raise some money and awareness about this issue and to educate others about it,” Hackathon organizers said in a statement.
“Our aim is to raise awareness, raise funds, and raise awareness about what we are doing.”
The hackathon is not about getting a job, but instead a chance to make some money.
Hackers will have to make “free-robo” purchases with credit cards or PayPal, and can then sell the goods on the site to pay the cost of their hack.
Hackathon participants will be paid in real money and in bitcoin, an electronic currency that can be purchased on the website.
Hack developers are also offering a $5,000 cash prize for the top three teams.
Hacksters will also get to design and create their own games, and will have the opportunity to show off their creations.
While the Hackathon is free for Hackathon attendees, the site will also be selling the RoboX “RoboX game” for $20.
Hackfest organizers hope to raise more than $40,000 in the course of the hackathon.
Hacky Hackfest will be held from July 12 to 13, 2017 in Kenya.
