Yahoo! Invited Hackers to Try

Yahoo! Invited Hackers to Try

While numerous hacker groups like Anonymous and LulzSec are trying to prove that they can break into any system in the world and therefore being legally pursued by all large corporations, Yahoo!’s made its own contribution to file-sharing by doing the opposite. The company’s appetite for innovation has led Yahoo! to organize a number of events in which they invited people to try and hack Yahoo APIs. The events weren’t held for the first time, and the last year’s winners of the Open Hack and University Hack Day events sponsored by Yahoo! were again given a chance to let their imagination go wild.


The latest event was called Hack All-Stars, and was held first time in New York City. More than three dozen hackers participated in the meeting that previously won different Yahoo Events. The participants were given only one day to try and access Yahoo’s goodies. The teams delivered sixteen hacks, and at the end, a file-sharing tool called Ruum was declared the winner.

Ruum is a file-sharing instrument that was designed and developed by the Team D1W from Carnegie Mellon University. The software allows Internet users to interact, share information, communicate in the chat and exchange comments. The Team D1W was granted $10,000 prize. In addition, the developers received a chance to spend a whole year with the Yahoo developing team. Finally, they can now bring their own file-sharing application to the market.

The jury of the contest included Forbes and Yahoo!’s senior executives. The company is going to organize more similar events in the future, so everyone who is interested in taking part in them are invited to visit the Hack University website and get ready to participate next time.

No avatarvery interesting to know such events,
but still, simply couldn't care less.
used to use yahoo! when it came out,
but the designs of their website, webpages and most of all, their email, gradually evolved into a very big messy layout with so many poorly designed and annoying distracting ads.
people who stick with yahoo! by way of microsoft's internet explorer could never imagine what and how much they missed if they ever use the more user-friendly and well key-functioning designed google email(clear-cut, single-focused, no messy but well arranged ads layout) and firefox browser.

AnalLint avatarTrue hackers would not participate in these events. The event only took place to have the intricacies of hacking unvailed by higher minds. This is an event to call out hackers so that they can be turned to working for large companies and in turn take their skills to set up protection. As you can see "hackers" from Universities, that are probably majoring in computers sciences advanced technologies, participated in this event. File sharing apps already exisits.
