  • Teen hacks Pentagon websites, gets thanked for finding ‘bugs’

    Reuters - 06/17/2016

    Dworken, who graduated on Monday from Maret high school in Washington, D.C., said he reported six vulnerabilities, but received no reward because they had already been reported.

    However, Dworken said he had already been approached by recruiters about potential internships.

    He said some of the bugs he found would have allowed others to display whatever they wanted on the websites and steal account information.

    Dworken, who will study computer science at Northeastern University, said his first experience with finding vulnerabilities was in 10th grade when he found bugs on his school website.
