An annual hacking contest that has made mincemeat of security on both Mac and
Windows computers will set its sights on smartphones and browsers with as much
as $100,000 in awards next month.
Now in its fourth year, the Pwn2Own competition will award $60,000 for
exploits that successfully penetrate Apple’s iPhone 3GS, Research in Motion’s
Blackberry Bold 9700, a Nokia device running the most recent version of Symbian
and a Motorola phone running Google’s Android. Each mobile attack that results
in code execution "with little to no user-interaction" will fetch $15,000.
