If you are looking for a legitimate way to earn some money while you live up to your hacker’s fantasies, Google presents you with the Android Security Rewards Program. This is such a lovely reminder of those good old days, when we had quite a few bugs bounty reward programs.
With this one you can earn from $2,000 up to $40,000 for a single bug hunt. The minimal amount in this bug bounty stories is reserved for the newest Nexus models. On the other hand, if you want to earn some serious money, then you have to do some serious work. Here is an example.
The five figure amounts are reserved for the guys, who can find a bug in the Android system itself. In addition, there is a nice way to double your reward. If you can find a bug, and a solution for it, as well, then you got yourself a rocking win-win. It seems that Google has figured it all out, isn’t it?
When it comes to bug bounty programs, there is no such thing as a wasted money. Every single dollar you invest for these purposes pays back two, three or more times. It is definitely better to reward people, than to compensate them once a certain cyber problem occurs. Right?
