A hacker who goes by "Pinkie Pie" has once again subverted the security of Google's Chrome browser, a feat that fetched him a $60,000 prize and resulted in a security update to fix underlying vulnerabilities.

Ars readers may recall Pinkie Pie from earlier this year, when he pierced Chrome's vaunted security defenses at the first installment of Pwnium, a Google-sponsored contest that offered $1 million in prizes to people who successfully hacked the browser. At the time a little-known reverse engineer of just 19 years, Pinkie Pie stitched together at least six different bug exploits to bypass an elaborate defense perimeter designed by an army of some of the best software engineers in the world.

At the second installment of Pwnium, which wrapped up on Tuesday at the Hack in the Box 2012 security conference in Kuala Lumpur, Pinkie Pie did it again. This time, his attack exploited two vulnerabilities. The first, against Scalable Vector Graphics functions in Chrome's WebKit browser engine, allowed him to compromise the renderer process, according to a synopsis provided by Google software engineer Chris Evans.

Nicolas Winding Refn continues to talk about how much he wants to do Wonder Woman. He said the following to The Playlist:

I would love to make ‘Wonder Woman. I would be the best at making ‘Wonder Woman.’ I was born to make ‘Wonder Woman.’ To do a movie about a universe where women are more powerful then men—this appeals to me very much.

io9 culled together a bunch of Batman desktop wallpapers from his comic, movie and video game incarnations. Head there to see them all, but this is one by Jock. The one at the top of the page is by Andy Jones.

Comic Book Movie came across this fan made Man of Steel teaser trailer by Julian Francis Adderley.

Chris Evans spoke to The Huffington Post (via Latino Review) about The Avengers and really played up the heart of the piece:

I think they struck a really good balance. There’s obviously action, you’ve got all these super heroes, there’s gonna be constant battle, I think every ten pages, there’s going to be some sort of action, but you can have all the action in the world, if you don’t have some substance, you got nothing. I don’t want to sh*t talk other movies, I know a lot of other movies like that where it’s all action and no heart. It’s not easy trying to bring all those characters together and find a story, but the best thing about Joss is that Joss is a fan, Joss is a comic book guy. It feels so nice working with a guy that is well, the people I am trying to please is Joss. Joss is one of those dudes. And if Joss is happy with the dialog, if Joss is happy with the wardrobe, if Joss is happy, then I’m happy. Because he’s Comic-Con, he’s one of these dudes who would be in the audience geeking out, so if he’s happy, I’m happy.

James Marsden, star of Straw Dogs and Cyclops himself, says that he’d love to come back for X-Men 4 for in this clip from MTV.

Bleeding Cool has an update on the case of the disabled Superman fan who was robbed of his memorabilia. They’ve made an arrest.

You’re probably familiar with the work of Jon Link and Mick Bunnage. Together as Modern Toss, they’ve mastered the art of drawing cynical cartoons that make people laugh and laugh and laugh. Some of their new work is currently showing at Ink_d Gallery in Brighton, so I used that as an excuse to call up Jon and ask him about the Modern Toss book that will never get published because it’s called Britain’s Biggest Cunts, as well as the £850 Swearing Jacket and his black dog, Peter.(...)
