MacBook Air gets hacked in 2 minutes – PWN 2 OWNMarch 27th, 2008 by WordPlop
Famed iPhone hacker Charlie Miller hacked a MacBook Air in just two minutes at this year’s PWN 2 OWN competition. Miller visited a website which contained his exploit code, which then allowed him to seize control of the computer. Contestants could only use software that came pre-installed on the operating system, which means he could have only used Safari for the exploit. Well done Mr. Miller, well done. Maybe now people will finally realize that Mac OS X isn’t virus-free like Apple claims.
Charlie will get a $10,000 reward as well as keep the Macbook Air.
