Pwn2Own: The perfect antidote to fanboys who say their platform is safe

For the past seven years, an annual hacker competition that pays big cash prizes has driven home the point that no Internet-connected software, regardless of who made it, is immune to exploits that surreptitiously install malware on the underlying computer. The first day of this year’s Pwn2Own 2014 and the companion contest that ran concurrently stuck with much the same theme, with successful hacks of the Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari browsers and Adobe’s Flash and Reader applications…… During day two, Chrome was on tap to be tested. If it is successfully felled, it wouldn’t be the first time. Meanwhile, George “GeoHot” Hotz, the hacker who famously bypassed the copyright restrictions of the Sony PlayStation 3, reportedly became the fourth contestant to defeat Firefox during day two. Update: Vupen has reportedly pwned Chrome as well.
