While hackers will soon be confidently strutting into CanSecWest with their exploits in hand, their soon-to-be victims have been doing everything they can to make it harder to walk away with those multi-thousand dollar cash prizes: On Wednesday Google patched up Chrome, on Thursday Mozilla patched up Firefox, and on Friday Apple announced that it will be following suit by patching up Safari very shortly. So everyone is bringing their "A" game — except for Microsoft. It seems that Microsoft cares more about their schedules then they do about Pwn2Own, as there will be no IE patches from Microsoft this month.
