Default Hack a Mac

If this is against the rules, by all means, close it.

So it seems like Macs are getting more and more popular, and the Mac fanboys are saying stuff like "Macs cant be hacked!" or "Macs never get any Viruses!". Oh fanboys, how I love your stupidity.

So there was a contest to see who can hack a Mac the fastest. Charlie Miller was the winner, getting $5K for winning at CanSecWest's PWN2OWN contest which hacked it in 10 seconds, took him 2 minutes last year.

Kind of funny how they hosts contests like these.
Just got bored and thought I share this.

I think the first guy to unlock the iPhone was a student at RIT. He traded the phone for a brand new 350Z.

Default Re: Hack a Mac

I think its inevitable and the same goes for linux. The more popular it becomes, the more people will try to hack it

"If man made it, man can get around it."

I think I got that off a different forum.
