    "Microsoft's Windows Phone emerged only partially scathed from this year's Mobile Pwn2Own hacking competition after a contestant failed to fully pierce its defenses.

    A blog post from Hewlett-Packard, whose Zero Day Initiative organizes the contest, provided only sparse details. Nonetheless, the account appeared to show Windows phone largely surviving."

    ....

    "The Windows Phone attack came during day two of the mobile hacking contest. During day one, an iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5, LG Nexus 5, and Amazon Fire Phone were all fully hijacked."

    Sending this link to my Apple fanboy friend. Just to show that his beloved Apple isn't the best after all. His way of saying thank you is "You're the best...like an Apple product".

    Anyway, Windows phone is the only OS with BitLocker drive encryption and a lot of other security features. They didn't just hack fire, Android, and IOS, they hacked Linux and UNIX.

    Now that I think of it, Samsung Knox was also compromised.

    Are you sure it's not for Tim Cook? I heard he has quite an interest in back doors...
