OK, I'll start it then.. PWN2OWN 2009.. thoughts?

Neon Samurai
So, the favorite entry point was browsers and they all fell starting with Safari fell first followed by IE8.

I've heard outright disgust that such a competition sensationalizes exploits where security research should be a humble activity intended to better computing for the end user.

I've also heard that the Safari exploit was discovered and sat on for a year just to pop the machine at this year's competition.

What are others thoughts on this years challenge?
