Browser security beaten in pwn2own hacker contest

Browser security topples this week, first Safari then IE8, in a contest to demonstrate the ability to execute native code and save files to the host machine’s file system via vulnerabilities in the browsers.

Safari was first to fall, followed by IE8. No results for Chrome yet, and no contestant signed up to challenge Firefox. Mobile phone browser next up.
