All Your Base Are Belong To Us!

In the delightfully mangled English of the old "Zero Wing" video game, the hackers at Pwn2Own took down all comers - browsers, Adobe Flash and Oracle's Java.
The Pwn2Own competition at CanSecWest has come to an end with the second day being like the first day. No web browser plugin survived being attacked and Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader XI and Java were all successfully hacked. Vupen security, who had demonstrated exploits of Internet Explorer 10, Firefox and Java on day one, returned with an exploit for Adobe Flash. George Hotz took down Adobe Reader and the day ended with Ben Murphy's exploit of Java, making it the fourth Java "pwning" of the contest.
