Google Has Tripled Payouts for Vulnerabilities Found in Chrome
OREANDA-NEWS In 2010, Google Inc. launched a rewards program for vulnerabilities found in Chrome. Nine years later, the Internet giant decided to increase the amount of payments by 2-3 times.
It is worth noting that the final amount of reward will greatly depend on how serious the bug is. The degree of detail of the report will also affect. If the report contains few details, the researcher will receive much less than he could have received for a detailed report. About the nuances that affect the amount of payments, you can read in the rules of Google.
For the minimum report, the amount paid out increased from $ 5,000 to $ 15,000. And for a full-fledged report, from $ 15,000 to $ 30,000. By the way, Google is most interested in exploits, which can be used to compromise Chromebooks or Chromebox devices in a guest mode. Also, the corporation will generously reward for circumventing the lock screen in Chrome OS.
