Fujitsu LifeBook U810 less hackable than Apple MacBook Air
The Fujitsu U810 may also be less desirable, sure, but in the PWN 2 OWN hacking contest at the CanSecWest security conference this week, it was also less hackable than the MacBook Air. Well, perhaps less quickly hackable anyway, as the guy who walked away with the $10K prize and the compromised notebook only needed two minutes to get the job done.
None of the contestants were able to hack into the provided U810, MacBook Air, or Sony Vaio on the first day of the contest, when the rules were at their strictest, but as soon as the hackers were allowed to lure judges into opening attachments or visiting malicious websites, the MacBook Air found itself defenseless. Whether the U810 could have been hacked into just as easily is unknown.[LinuxWorld via CrunchGear]
