The US Air Force wants you to hack their satellites

The Air Force is again holding its annual “Space Security Challenge” where they invite you to hack into a satellite to test their cybersecurity measures. There are actually two events. In the first one, $150,000 is up for grabs in ten prizes and the final event offers a $100,000 purse divided among the three top participants (first place takes $50,000).

This is something I learned a little about recently. Apparently satellite security is generally pretty weak since they are already so expensive; security isn't seen as a priority and since they're in space, I guess people have assumed that makes them hard to hack.. but it's not really the case. So recently the military started hosting annual satellite hacking contests to try to identify weakness and hopefully improve them.
