Privacy, Security, Encryption As he had already predicted, cracker Charlie Miller has won the PWN2OWN contest by cracking Safari and Mac OS X within seconds of the start of the competition. "It took a couple of seconds. They clicked on the link and I took control of the machine," Miller said after his accomplishment. He took home the USD 10000 prize, as well as the MacBook he performed the exploit on. Internet Explorer 8 fell a while later by cracker Nils, who also cracked Safari and Firefox after being done with IE8.

RE[5]: Sad to say

However, the app domains are implemented as multiple copies of the .NET VM running inside a single process. Even if you have a single process with 10 application domains, you still have multiple VMs, which are deliberately kept isolated from one another. Big deal - pretty much any VM runtime can do that

You learn something new every day ;)

I was under the impression that while appdomains were heavy, it was less overhead then to run multiple java apps. Guess there isn't all that much of a difference other then the shared memory bit.
