Internet & Networking "Just over two months ago, Chrome sponsored the Pwnium browser hacking competition. We had two fantastic submissions, and successfully blocked both exploits within 24 hours of their unveiling. Today, we'd like to offer an inside look into the exploit submitted by Pinkie Pie." A work of pure art, this. Also, this is not the same person as the other PinkiePie. Also also, you didn't think I'd let a story with a headline like this go by unnoticed, did you?

Actually C and C++ are the weakest links, not the GPU, as the exploits take advantage of the pointer tricks so dear to C and C++ developers.

If ComputeMaxResults() was done in a more sane language, this exploit wouldn't have been possible, without doing some Assembly code rewriting.
