Pwn2Own 2010 aims at smartphones

Pwn2Own - long a staple of the CanSecWest security conference - is putting more than half of its prize fund towards exploits in popular smartphone platforms.

I think as smartphone uptake increases, more and more malware will target phones. The sooner security holes are found and fixed in the most popular platforms, the better.

That's freaking ancient - I expected something like E72 or E52...

Even if they manage to get in the E62, the test has lost all it's relevance. The other products are recent ones (all 2009~2010 products) while the E62 is from 2006...?

It's like they're telling Symbian :
