    [While we have discussed the futility of hacker contests breaking 
    security for prizes, a little word of advice for this one, take the 
    Ferrari! since for the most part its worth about $130+K U.S.D. over 
    taking the cash. :)  - WK]

    A couple of high-tech challenges offer big bounties for folks who can
    do some serious code breaking. Data security software vendor Meganet
    is offering a new Ferrari Modena 360 to anyone who can break its
    flagship Virtual Matrix Encryption. Meganet's encryption is based on a
    1 million-byte algorithm.
    If you prefer cold cash, Bodacion Technologies promises $100,000 to
    any hacker savvy enough to break the encryption on its Hydra Internet
    Bodacion Technologies' code uses chaos theory. "The chaos is derived
    from functions used to describe cell growth," says chief software
    architect Eric Uner. "Any patterns which seem to reveal themselves
    quickly take a left turn."
