We hope you're brushed up on your hacking skills, as Mega founder (we can't really keep saying MegaUpload founder now, can we?) is offering up a bounty for the first person to break into Mega.

Dotcom is offering a very tidy 10,000 euros (or roughly $13,580) for the first person to break into Mega, where he has offered up the prize for enterprising hackers after the site was criticized for the way it handles security. Mega launched just under two weeks ago now and has since taken 50 million files from users.

 

Dotcom's bounty offer is a good way to get hackers to break through their security so that they know what to patch up, but we should expect this from a 'beta' of a cloud storage site.
