Mac Os X First To Go Down

March 28, 2008

The first attempt to attack a computer during the PWN2OWN hacking competition was successful on the Apple Mac operating system. The analyst who was successful in the security breach was able to win the computer and $10,000 for his efforts. The security breach was completed against the Safari browser.

The breach carried out by Charlie Millie, an employee of an independent security firm was known since last month, and Miller was able to compromise the computer in less than sixty seconds. Since he did have user interaction, this breach does not qualify for the $20,000 prize.
