Submission + - Pwn2Own Spurs Browser Updates (computerworld.com)

Stenchwarrior writes:

Mozilla on Tuesday fixed 11 security flaws in Firefox, following in rival Google's footsteps in patching its browser before a hacking contest kicks off next week. Nine of the 11 flaws were rated "critical," a threat rating that implies hackers could use the vulnerabilities to compromise a computer or infect it with malware. Of the two remaining bugs, one was labeled "high" and the second was tagged as "moderate."

I wonder if browser companies would have released these patches so quickly (or at all) were it not for Pwn2Own?
