Security fixes and rewards:
Congratulations to PinkiePie (aka PwniePie) for a beautiful piece of work to close out the Pwnium competition!
We’re delighted at the success of Pwnium and the ability to study full exploits. We anticipate landing additional changes and hardening measures for both CVE-2011-3046 and CVE-2011-3047 in the near future. We also believe that both submissions are works of art and deserve wider sharing and recognition. We plan to do technical reports on both Pwnium submissions in the future.
