Three Things to Take Away from CanSecWest, Pwn2Own

Browsers, brokers and BIOS: you could safely call that triumvirate the past, present and future of security, but you’d be wrong.

If last week’s CanSecWest conference, and Pwn2Own and Pwnium contests are indeed a point-in-time snapshot of the technical side of information security, then after last week it’s a no-brainer all three merit more than a lackadaisical passing interest.

Researchers came to the Pwn2Own and Pwnium tables with an alarming rash of exploits for zero-day browser vulnerabilities. None was to be spared among the big four of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari, each falling despite state-of-the-art mitigations and constant reminders about the threats posed by Web-based exploits and malware.
