Google on Thursday informed security researchers that they can now earn significantly higher rewards if they submit vulnerability reports through the company’s bug bounty programs.
According to the tech giant, over 8,500 security bug reports have been received since the launch of its Chrome Vulnerability Rewards Program in 2010, and more than $5 million have been paid out to researchers.
The company has now decided to increase rewards across the board. For example, the maximum baseline reward has been tripled from $5,000 to $15,000 and high quality reports describing serious vulnerabilities can earn white hat hackers up to $30,000.
