Pwn2Own 2009: Safari/MacBook falls in seconds

In case you missed this, in a security conference called Pwn2Own 2009, Safari/MacBook falls in seconds. Here is the link: http://blogs.zdnet.com/security/?p=2917

According to Miller the winner, “It took a couple of seconds. They clicked on the link and I took control of the machine.” He describes Safari as “easy pickin’s”.

I think at least for a while people should not flippantly say that macs are more secure than windows. But just to be fair, windows’ IE 8 also got broken into a little while afterward by another hacker.

Lesson learned, you have to know how to secure your system whether you are using mac or windows.
