In the tournament held annually by the TianFu Cup, the security gaps in the most popular electronic devices are demonstrated. A team of hackers managed to breach the security of the iPhone 11 Pro with iOS 14 in just 10 seconds.

In China, 15 teams took part this year to find unknown vulnerabilities and hack them, that is, to hack an application or device. Each team had three options of five minutes each.

The participants received juicy rewards for each successful attack. The amount depended on the target and the nature of the vulnerability.

The most successful hack was teams made up of experts from the Ant-Financial Light-Year Security Lab and the Government and Corporate Security Vulnerability Research Institute (Qihoo 360). Both received the total of $ 180,000 (more than 3 million Mexican pesos) as the prize for breaking an iPhone 11 Pro with iOS 14 in just 10 seconds.

Qihoo 360 repeated its place on the podium when they also managed to position themselves with first place in the competition last year.

At TianfuCup 2020, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, a Samsung Galaxy S20 with Android, Windows 10 v 2004 and Adobe PDF Reader were successfully injured.
