But you have to remember, not all hack's are being displayed at the Pwn2Own contest, simply because the people that know the hacks, do not want them to be patched. This is more of a Whitehat conference.

Thats what the cash prizes are for. You can only make so much money selling contact data on the internet.

Maybe I missed it, but did they attempt to crack Chrome.  If so, then why not mention that?  If not, why not?

I wonder how long they'll take to crack Opera? Even if they do, there is the benefit of security through obscurity.

Does this mean even easier jailbreaking? Or will the hack be turned over to Apple wrapped and in a box?
