    Gone in 2 minutes: Mac gets hacked first in contest

    Mac gets hacked in 2 minutes

    it's these sort of things that make me laugh when I see those iMac adverts, claiming that there are few viruses for the Mac.

    Vista Notebook falls

    Vista notebook hacked well, didn't give an exact time. doubt many even tried with the Linux =/

    going on my gut instinct, I'd say that vista survived pretty well, considering the number of applications in comparison to the mac and Linux. it would be quite easy to make a statement at these conferences, just by simply saying "I'm not going to hack this OS" I think the really interesting thing to note is that non of the OS's could be cracked by doing a direct attack.

    Isn't this just a case of firewall protection, though?
    It's only when we start sending out file requests that things get challenging.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    well, that's pretty much what I'm getting at. the security of the system is fine. it's more often the user that can be the issue.
