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.


Back then, they were indeed not yet cracked.

This is now.

That's not rocket science.

Did you even read the article or anything I posted this time or last time? Both had been cracked for a while now. The new technique just doesn't require a third party app like flash or java.

A lot of people, including Thom unfortunately, keeps buying into and repeating the hype instead of reviewing what's _actually_ there


Ah, we're back tot he pro-Microsoft accusations. I guess we got tired of the OSS-zealot accusations.
