Ok,so as a Microsoft fanboy it is my turn to gloat. Vista Ultimate still stands strong
after the 2nd day of the PWN 2 OWN contest. Basically the contest provides three
laptops that have Windows Vista Ultimate, OSX 10.5.2 and Ubuntu.
The hacker receives a prize of 10k and the laptop he hacks…
After the first day(only network attacks were allowed) all three systems were still standing
on the 2nd day contestants were allowed to instruct organizers to work on the
systems…Charlie Miller (responsible for the first iPhone hack) pointed one of the organizers
to a website-and that was it (2 minutes).
Ok,so I am not really happy about this but it’s still fun to see that after all the bashing
Vista is still standing!
