It's been a month since the 2022 Pwnie Awards brought a serving of zazz to Black Hat USA. Now in its 15th year, the Pwnie Awards definitely acts its age. Like many a teenager, the show was antic, careening between silly bits, snarky jokes, and devastating critiques.
The main hosts for the evening were Sophia d'Antoine and Ian Roos, respectively founder and researcher at Margin Research. D'Antoine played it straight in a classic green dress and long white graphic jacket, dropping acid comments and bons mots. Roos was the Costello to her Abbott, decked out in the sartorial equivalent of the impulse-buy rack at a corner liquor store and occasionally drinking beer from a can.
Red Balloon Security founder and CEO Ang Cui, who crafted the statuettes, split the difference in a tuxedo with a reversible sassy-to-classy jacket. The trio was joined by other hosts including Supriya Mazumdar, who shared a series of jokes relating to the Tesla RCE bug, such as saying that executing the exploit was like "shooting fish in Elon Musk's barrel chest."
Here is a roundup of the greatest highs, lowest lows, and most interesting twists and sparks in the world of cybersecurity.
