Tianfu Cup is China’s largest and most prestigious hacking competition. This year’s Tianfu Cup competition was held over the last weekend. Security researchers won nearly $1.2 million by successfully hacking several popular software products including Microsoft’s Windows 10, Apple iOS, Chrome web browser, Adobe PDF Reader and Ubuntu.

Security researcher @programmeboy from 360 ESG Vulnerability Research Institute successfully hacked Windows 10 v2004 (April 2020 edition) with a kernel bug.

In the coming days, Microsoft will release a Windows 10 update to fix this new vulnerability.
