Pwn2Own 2009: Browsers Fall

With the Pwn2Own contest at CanSecWest nearly over, nearly all of the major browsers have quickly fallen – which is unfortunate. In fact, Safari on the Macintosh MacBook fell in less than 10 seconds.

This year’s contest strongly brings the security of current browsers under scrutiny: Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari all quickly fell, allowing compromise of the machine they were running on. Google’s Chrome browser will come under fire on Friday.

ComputerWorld had a nice writeup.
