News: Cash For Bugs

Category: Software, Bugs / Virus
Posted: 07:45AM

BBC News - A new online auction site has been set up to allow security researchers to earn cash rewards for bugs and loopholes they find in software. WabiSabiLabi aims to prevent the sale of such information to malicious or criminal groups by providing a way to legitimately sell discovered exploits and vulnerabilities. Some companies, such as The Mozilla Foundation already offer rewards to anyone finding critical bugs in it's software, but hopefully this should encourage more people to report bugs to the "right" people.
