Need a Million Flying Miles? Try Hacking United Airlines

AirlinesIn one of the most talked about hacking challenges thrown out in the open, United Airlines have promised a reward of a million flying miles for anyone who can hack its website, servers, apps and data. This was announced by the firm recently –supposedly as a part of a confidence building exercise to overcome the negative publicity about a recent incident when a security researcher was deplaned when he tweeted about the lack of WiFi security and loopholes in entertainment network in a United Airlines plane.

However, this offer is not for both of those categories which are openly available for the public-but for other technology of the company. The company had warned of criminal action against trying to hack these two-in the same announcement it made to market the reward.
