As a reminder, the rules today allowed only for a contestant to use a remote pre-auth 0day to win a laptop and cash prize. On day two of the contest, which begins at 12:30pm local time tomorrow, the attack surface will be expanded to all default-installed client side applications on the laptops as well. This means any exploit that involves following a link through email, vendor supplied IM client, or visiting a malicious website. The contest will also continue to honor any remote pre-auth exploits as well. Click here for a refresher on the full rules and cash prizes.
Rumor has it that the laptops' fates wont be as kind on day two of the contest. Check back here tomorrow and stay tuned...
Update - check our main blog index for updates on days two and three of the contest.

Thank you for providing this coverage. It's probably less exciting to watch than a chess match, but I find the whole thought process interesting. Keep up the GREAT work.
