Paying out a bounty for discovering an exploit has become an accepted convention in the tech industry; with Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Apple all paying out huge sums of money to anybody reporting a vulnerability in one of their products. These bounties usually range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands.
Google recently set aside a whopping sum of $350,000 for its Project Zero Contest. This prize money would be awarded to anyone who is able to hack a Nexus 6P or a 5X.
$200,000 will be awarded to the first winning entry, $100,000 to the next and $50,000 for all following successful entries.
If you haven’t got into hacking as yet, now would be a great time to do so.
