The Federal Trade Commission announced Thursday the winners of its "Zapping Rachel" robocall contest held earlier this month at the DEF CON 22 hacking conference.

The contest offered winners a total of $17,000 and challenged participants to design a robocall honeypot - an information system designed to attract robocallers and help law enforcement authorities, researchers and others gain enhanced insights into their tactics.
