Chrome Got Pwned At Pwn2Own

It that time of the year again. No it’s not just Roll Up The Rim To Win time in Canada. It’s Pwn2Own time. And this year it took a grand total of five minutes to find out who the first victim was. It was the much lauded Google Chrome who claimed that their sandboxing technology made it safer than other browsers. I guess that can’t be considered to be true anymore. The ironic thing is that Google offered up $1 million to anyone who could hack their browser not too long ago. I’m guessing that Google has to pay up now.

I wonder how Google will respond to this? A bug fix isn’t enough. They have to explain why this happened. I for one can’t wait for their answer.
