Companies issue patches for their browsers in preparation of the 2010 Pwn2Own Hackers competition

March 24, 2010  Security Suite

Google issued its own patch for Chrome prior to the start of the popular hackers’ competition known as Pwn2Own, which takes place on March 24th. The patch fixed a bug that was found by Sergey Glazunov. For finding the bug, he received $1,337 in accordance to Google’s new reward program for finding bugs and other mistakes in their applications. This patch also fixes several other bugs, none of which were classified as Critical, and only 6 of them were classified as High Risk (2nd highest rating). Apple reacted similarly when last week they issued a patch pack for Safari that fixed 16 bugs, 12 of which were classified as High Risk. The security community anxiously waits which of the 4 registered browsers will be cracked first. Last year, Apple was awarded this 1st place position when sadly, Safari was cracked within 5 – 10 seconds.
