Chrome falls first at Pwn2Own

At this years P2n2Own hacking competition Google's Chrome browser was the first victim. Pwn2Own is a yearly hacking contest where hackers are invited to see who can hack different products and if you are the first one to hack that particular product you win it (or prize money in the case of web browsers). At last years contest no one was able to hack Google's Chrome browser (Safari was the first one to fall last year) but in this years edition, according to PCMag, Chrome was the first one to fall.

Though Google's Chrome was left unscathed at last year's CanSecWest's Pwn2Own hacking competition, this year it was the first one to fall.

ZDNet reported that the Google browser was taken down by a group of French hackers called Vupen – the same team that cracked Safari at last year's contest.
