Security researcher Charlie Miller was the first winner on day one of the annual Pwn2Own competition at the CanSecWest security conference in Canada after hacking the Safari browser in under two minutes, reports vnunet.com. He won $5,000 and a MacBook Pro for his efforts.
However, another contestant going by the name "Nils" was the uncontested champion, according to The Register. Nils, a 25 year old computer science student at the University of Oldenburg in Germany, was not only able to crack Safari, but also Internet Explorer and Firefox using malware embedded in a Web page. He won $15,000 and three laptops.
