Mobile users can breathe a heavy sigh of relief as their beloved mobile devices are safe for another year.  The Pwn2Own competition put on by CanSecWest in Vancouver, British Columbia, draws hackers from far and wide that come together to find, exploit, and aid developers and manufacturers in patching security holes, were unable to break into any of the mobile devices entered (according to Tipping Point) even though they had a field day with browsers just a few short days ago.  The mobile OS’s that were represented this year include: iPhone, Blackberry OS, Symbian, Android, and Windows Mobile.  All of the mobile OS’s held their ground and rebuked hackers’ attempts to gain access.  The hackers however claim that “next year they will come better prepared”.  So for now we can go on with our merry lives not knowing what dangers lurk.  Until next year folks, use your mobiles happily…though with a cautious eye.
