If memory serves, aren't flash and java often involved in the exploits?

 

There are prizes for that too as well as hacking all the well known browsers.

 

 

Pwn2Own researchers also take aim at browser plug-ins, including Adobe's Flash and PDFs, with exploits earning $75,000 each.   

 

 

An attacker that is able to exploit Google Chrome on 64-bit Windows 8.1 x64 will be awarded $100,000.
