TippingPoint | DVLabs | PWN to OWN: Final Day (and another winner!)

Ubuntu, that is! From the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter:

CanSecWest PWN2OWN 2008 contest had laptops with various operating systems: VAIO VGN-TZ37CN running Ubuntu 7.10, Fujitsu U810 running Vista Ultimate SP1, and a MacBook Air running OSX 10.5.2. All in typical client configurations with typical user configurations. Anyone who could expose vulnerabilities on one of the machines, could keep it.

At the end of the last day of the contest, only the Sony VAIO laptop running Ubuntu was left standing, and unhacked.

Ubuntu is not only secure, it is easy-to-use, powerful, and generally awesome. And I’m pimping it, so you know it’s good. http://www.ubuntu.com/
