Hackproof Linux

Earlier this week, contest sponsors put three laptops up for anyone who could hack into one of the systems and run their own software.

A $20,000 cash prize was offered but the prize was halved each day, as contest rules were relaxed and it became easier to penetrate the computers.

The MacBook Air fell first.

A Fujitsu laptop running Vista was hacked on the last day of the contest. But what about the third computer running Linux?

A Sony Vaio with Ubuntu running on it remained undefeated as conference organisers ended their hacking challenge.
