Pwn2Own, the yearly hacking contest held as part of the CanSecWest security conference, saw the successful hijacking of fully patched versions of Safari and Internet Explorer 8 this year. Ars Technica described Pwn2Own as the following:
If a researcher can pwn the browser—that is, make it run arbitrary code—then they get to own the hardware the browser runs on. This year, not only did they have to run arbitrary code, they also had to escape any sandboxes—restricted environments with reduced access to data and the operating system—that are imposed.
