Privacy, Security, Encryption With the infamous PWN2OWN contest drawing ever closer, the heat is ramping up. This year's instalment pitches Apple's Safari (on the Mac), Google's Chrome, Internet Explorer 8, and Firefox (all on Windows 7) against one another, while also allowing crackers to take on mobile platforms. Last year's winner, Charlie Miller, who won by cracking Mac OS X within minutes last year, says Safari on the Mac will be the first to fall.

The title of this post is really misleading. You're using ":" as "predicts" when it could easily mean "says" or "reports". I would change it to "predicts".

The title was pretty clear that Miller was making a comment. The article goes on to explain that the statement was a prediction. It's best not to nit pick about these things though.

The title does appear to speaking the past-tense, though. I would personally change it to something along the lines of:

"Safari on Mac First to Fall During PWN2OWN Contest," Charlie Miller predicts

(assuming the headline is a direct quote, that is).
