Google Now Paying up to $15,000 for Bugs

by Developer.com Staff

The company has tripled its top bug bounty payout for finding vulnerabilities in Chrome.

Google has dramatically increased the bug bounties it is willing to pay researchers and developers who find flaws in its Chrome browser. It tripled the top payout it offers from $5,000 to $15,000, but to get that top reward, you'll need to find a Sandbox escape, write up a high-quality report and provide a working exploit.

The company first began its bug bounty program back in 2010 with a top payout of $1,337. Since then, it has paid more than $1.25 million to individuals who found more than 700 bugs.

At its Pwnium events, Google has paid as much as $50,000 to those who found security vulnerabilities in its software.
