Pwn2Own 2010 is under way, and after day one of the annual security showdown the results are darn near an exact replica of last year’s. Safari was the first to fall, followed by Internet Explorer 8 on Windows 7. Firefox on Windows 7 x64 was also taken down, as was the iPhone’s mobile Safari. Google Chrome, however, has yet to succumb.
I would have honestly thought Internet Explorer — any of them — would be first to circle the drain.
[Update]: One person makes the interesting observation that Safari is first to be hacked because the prize, the Macbook on which the browser ran, was the nicest of the prizes.
