CanSecWest PWN2OWN Hacks Mac in 10seconds

Last year’s CanSecWest PWN2OWN successfully hacked Mac OS X in 2 minutes, but this year it’s a whooping 10 seconds!

From interview , he described “I gave them the link, they clicked on it, and that was it,” said Miller. “I did a few things to show that I had full control of the Mac.”

He walked off with a $5,000 cash prize and the MacBook he hacked.

Apparently, just last year the attack went succesful by targetting Safari + internet connection.

This give us a clear picture on what attack vector could easily get onto users’ computer.

Not surprising that we are now bombarded with Internet threats!
