It’s about that time of year: the days when a young man’s thoughts drift from work and toil to lighter things. Like pwnies. No, not the Lisa Simpson kind of pony, but the 2nd Annual Pwnie Awards at BlackHat USA.
The pwnie awards are an annual awards ceremony to celebrate the successes and failures of the security research and larger security community. Check out the site for more info and send in your nominations. Please submit nominations for vulnerabilities or research disclosed between June 1, 2007 and May 31, 2008 and the nominations will be announced on July 14th.
And make sure to come to the ceremony to enjoy the stand-up comedy, musical performances, and exquisitely handmade gold-painted My Little Pony dolls (with little imperfections so that you know they were made by a real-live Pwnie Judge).
