Windows 11 hacked three more times

On the third and last day of the 2022 Pwn2Own Vancouver hacking contest, security researchers successfully hacked Microsoft’s Windows 11 operating system three more times using zero – day exploits.

Targeting the MS Teams failed after Team DoubleDragon could not demo their exploit within the allotted time.

Bruno Pujos from REverse Tactics and vinhthp1712 also escalated privileges on Windows 11 using Use-After-Free and Improper Access Control vulnerabilities, respectively.

In April, hackers also earned $400,000 for 26 zero day exploits targeting ICS and SCADA products demoed during the 2022 Pwn2Own Miami contest between April 19 and April 21.
