    iPhone Hacked Fast at Pwn2Own 2010

    An iPhone got hacked in just 20 seconds at this week’s Pwn2Own hacking contest at CanSecWest 2010, along with Internet Explorer 8, and Apple’s Safari browser. DV Labs sponsors the annual hacking contest where if you successfully exploit a target you get to keep it along with a ZDI cash prize and related benefits. The event is spread over three days, and offers targets on multiple platforms. This year Hackers Vincenzo Iozzo and Ralf Philipp Weinmann demoed a exploit on the iphone, that allowed them to send a target iPhone to a web site

    that they’d set up online, and then copied the entire SMS database of the target iPhone including deleted text messages to their own server . All which was done in under 20 seconds!
