iPhone, BlackBerry tumble to Pwn2Own hackers

Gregg Keizer, Computerworld | March 10, 2011
Apple's iPhone 4 and RIM's BlackBerry Torch 9800 both succumbed to hackers today at Pwn2Own, but two other smartphones running Android and Windows Phone 7 were unchallenged, the contest's sponsor said.

Even with some targets surviving unopposed by researchers, Vreugdenhil called Pwn2Own 2011 a success. "It's been a great two days," he said.

Miller agreed. "The contest is a good idea, and I wish there were more of them," said Miller. "They motivate guys like me, who are hard to motivate. And in the end it's a win-win for everyone."
