On Monday Google announced that it’s now offering as much as $20,000 to researchers who find new ways to hack its web services and then report those security vulnerabilities to the company’s security team to help them fix the flaws. That sum is a major bump from the $3,133.70 that represented the company’s maximum payout for security bug information until now, and may be a recognition that the company’s limited bounties haven’t measured up to much higher payouts from buyers who use the same vulnerability information for offensive hacking.
Man, $20k will have you set for year.
And with some extra dough on the side.
