Privacy, Security, Encryption It's that time of the year again; that time of the year where news outlets get to indulge in sensationalist headlines about how Mac OS X got hacked in twenty seconds. Yes, CanSecWest just held its Pwn2Own contest again, and they fell like drunk 16-year-olds this time (don't read too much into that one, please).

Thom, this just goes to show you that you were wrong as ever when you said DEP and ASLR were never cracked. I know I pointed out before that this was not the case but now we have new exploit techniques that do not rely on third party code. It just goes to show that nothing is really secure. I don't doubt that we will see the same results year after year.
