Looks like there are many ways to fight Cybercrime. Well one of them is to get a rapper involved. That’s what Norton is doing for its “Hack is Wack” Cybercrime Rap contest. Popular Rap star Snoop Dog has partnered with Norton for the “Hack is Wack” Cybercrime Rap Contest which is set to begin today. This month long contest will end on 11:59pm ET on September 30.
The contest involves contestants to rap about botnets, keystroke loggers, malware and rogue security software. The video can be a maximum of two minutes in length and will be judged based on originality, creativity and how well the anti-cybercrime message is conveyed. Norton also asked the contestants to keep the music clean.

It also includes a $1,000 travel stipend, awarded in the form of airline vouchers and Hotel accommodations for two days and one night.
