Google pays record bounty for Chrome bug

Quote:

Google patched 16 vulnerabilities in Chrome on Thursday, paying one researcher a record $3,133 for reporting a single bug. The flaws fixed in Chrome 8.0.552.334 were in several components, including the browser's support for extensions, its built-in PDF viewer, and CSS (cascade style sheet) processing.

Thirteen of the bugs were labeled as "high" threats, Google's second-most-serious rating, and two were pegged "medium." Only one was tagged as "critical."

It's nice that Google paid anything at all, but $3,133 is but a penny. Still, it's nice to see such a program exists
