$100,000 Hacker Challenge

Meganet Corp. is offering a new Ferrari Modena 360 to anyone who can break its flagship Virtual Matrix Encryption. And Bodacion Technologies promises $100,000 to anyone who breaks the encryption on its Hydra Internet servers.

A couple of high-tech challenges offer big prizes for folks who can do some serious code breaking.

Data security software vendor Meganet Corp. is offering a new Ferrari Modena 360 to anyone who can break its flagship Virtual Matrix Encryption. If you prefer cold cash, Bodacion Technologies promises $100,000 to any hacker savvy enough to break the encryption on its Hydra Internet servers.

Meganet's encryption is based on a million-byte algorithm. Bodacion's code uses chaos theory for its encryption. "The chaos is derived from functions used to describe cell growth," chief software architect Eric Uner says. "Any patterns which seem to reveal themselves quickly take a left turn."
