“Get Aware”: From our very first article, we are getting you aware & educated about various general & some uncommon. And today, we will learn about Phishing, but before that check out the artwork that I created (I hope it looks good):
Recently held “Pwn2Own hacking challenge” challenged security researchers to hack in major browsers and they were able to all major web browsers, taking home the cash prize of $240,000. It was the second day of the event when Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Apple Safari got exploited by the researchers. And the impressing thing was that one of them just took a little less than 1 second to exploit Firefox’s out-of-bounds memory vulnerability. Another researcher demonstrated three different browser exploits against IE 11, Chrome and Safari.
So, what does this mean for you?

By exposing vulnerabilities, they push the Internet to become stronger and healthier, wielding their power to create a better world. Check her amazing talk and learn how hackers can be good too.
