Safari and IE8 hacked at Pwn2Own, Chrome still safe

Just a few minutes before Pwn2Own contest, Apple released Safari 5.0.4 along with iOS 4.3. At the contest, MacBook Air and Safari 5.0.4 pwned in five seconds. Vupen said “We pwned Apple Safari on Mac OS X (x64) at pwn2own in 5 seconds,”. That, at least, is better than it fared in 2008.

Besides, Internet Explorer 8 was taken down by Stephen Fewer, who used three separate vulnerabilities to get out of Protected Mode and crack that browser’s best locks.

Google made a proud challenge as it said it’d pay $20,000 to any team or individual who could successfully hack Chrome. Till now it’s still safe but we’re waiting for more! [Engadget9to5mac,ComputerWorld]

  1. This site appears to get a great deal of visitors. How do you get traffic to it? It gives a nice individual spin on things. I guess having something useful or substantial to post about is the most important factor.
