The annual Pwn2Own event, organized by the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI), was held in Toronto (Canada). In fact, this is a research conference in which hackers can demonstrate their abilities to hack commercial products. Subsequently, all data is transferred to manufacturers in order for them to “patch holes”.

As part of Pwn2Own, hackers discovered various vulnerabilities in HP, NETGEAR, Synology, Sonos, TP-Link, Canon, Lexmark and Western Digital network drives (NAS), but they managed to hack Samsung Galaxy S22 the fastest.

The hacker teams of STAR Labs and Chim found two security holes in the Galaxy S22

On the first day of Pwn2Own, which allowed them to gain full access to the phone. On the second day of the event, hackers from the Pentest Limited group hacked the phone once again, and on the third day, the Galaxy S22 was hacked for the fourth time, and in record time – in just 55 seconds.

It is important to note that all the devices provided for hacking under Pwn2Own have all the latest updates installed – this is one of the requirements of the competition.
