As first day at Pwn2Own hacking contest nears its end, web browser results are in.
Just like last year, Apple’s Safari 4 on Snow Leopard 10.6 was hacked first, as Charlie Miller set up a remove exploit.
To address recently discovered security vulnerabilities, Mozilla has released Firefox 3.6.2 (ahead the schedule). Not only this release fixes mentioned flaws, but also includes more than 100 bug fixes and other improvements.
As always, you can download it via automatic updates or GetFirefox.com.
Good news, Opera Software has finished Opera Mini for the iPhone and submitted it to Apple’s App Store.
What happens next? We sit and wait. While doing just that, you can try guessing approximate application approval date and win an iPhone!
