    Link: 10 questions for MacBook hacker Dino Dai Zovi
    Description:: I caught up with security researcher Dino Dai Zovi to discuss his successful hijack of a MacBook Pro machine at last week's CanSecWest conference in Vancouver, Canada. We talk about the specific vulnerability, the motivation for the attack, Apple's response and his plans around Mac OS X research.

    Sounds like a very different experience than David Maynor and Jon Ellch had. Hmm...

    That was quite an interesting read, Dino Dai Zovi comes across quite well. I think his skills could be put to good use probing OS X much harder to ensure the continued reputation of the OS.

    Anyone know the details of how he did it? Like, what HTML code would be used to do that?

    Yes :) Zovi and his partner know, the company they sold the details to knows, and Apple knows :) And that's as it should be until there's a patch.

    Is an Intel mac easier to hack into than a PPC Mac? Is it because of this (from Wikipedia):

    I don't believe any Mac exploits related to that have been found.

    Very interesting reading. A very reasonable guy.
