WP7 Survives Pwn2Own – iPhone Cracked in MinutesMarch 11, 2011 No Comments
With one more day left, Windows Phone 7 remains secure in the Pwn2Own 2011 contest. Things started off pretty insane as Charlie Miller cracked a Macbook Pro in 5 seconds. Also the iPhone was reported to be hacked in a matter of 5 minutes. There is one more day left in the competition but it looks like Windows Phone 7 will walk out of there unharmed and unchallenged.
‘Neither Android or WP7 were attacked though as the entrants backed out prior to the event. To be fair, there was an Android exploit that was just reported to Google and a smaller bounty was collected by the developer but had he waited on his hack he could have pulled off the exploit today. Thereâ€™s still another day but it seems unlikely that anyone is going to take shots at Android, Chrome or WP7.’
