    The brand new Android smartphone launched by Google just a few months back has been hacked by Chinese hackers just in less than a minute.
    Yes, the Google's latest Pixel smartphone has been hacked by a team white-hat hackers from Qihoo 360, besides at the 2016 PwnFest hacking competition in Seoul.
    The Qihoo 360 team demonstrated a proof-of-concept exploit that used a zero-day vulnerability in order to achieve remote code execution (RCE) on the target smartphone.
    The exploit then launched the Google Play Store on the Pixel smartphone before opening Google Chrome and displaying a web page that read "Pwned By 360 Alpha Team," the Reg media reports.
    Qihoo 360 won $120,000 cash prize for hacking the Pixel.
    Google will now work to patch the vulnerability.

    Besides the Google Pixel, Microsoft Edge running under Windows 10 was also hacked.
    The Qihoo 360 team also hacked Adobe Flash with a combination of a decade-old, use-after-free zero-day vulnerability and a win32k kernel flaw to win a $120k prize.

    The Qihoo 360 team of hackers walked away with a total prize money of $520,000
