A smattering of security stories reveals the ongoing challenges to protecting systems and data.
From the discovery of the first serious iPhone 3G exploit to the sighting of a new Captcha-conquering bot, the past week has proven interesting in the world of IT security, so much so that I've decide to take a look at several of stories that have cropped up, rather than doing my regular deep-dive into a specific topic.

Chrome, the last browser standing at Pwn2Own

Results of TippingPoint's CanSecWest hacking contest, Pwn2Own, once again demonstrated that building a perfectly secure Internet browser is very difficult. Even though Firefox and Apple rushed out dozens of last-minute security patches before the big contest, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer 8 all quickly fell. A Safari bug even led to the first serious documented iPhone 3G exploit.
