Two contests in one Backdoor Hiding/Finding Contest (participate in either or both): In the first stage, participants provide a source code hiding a backdoor, in the second stage organizers mix the source codes with non-backdoored (placebos), and then ask people to spot the placebos. You get hiding points for being voted as a placebo and finding points for spotting the placebos. (site), (twitter)
