Mozilla Ramps Up Vulnerability Reward Program
Mozilla announces that it has brought its security bounty program in line with the new economic times and has increased the reward paid to researchers for eligible security bugs from $500 to $3,000. It has also officially added Firefox Mobile and other Mozilla services to the list of products covered by the program.
Mozilla launched in Security Bug Bounty Program back in 2004 with support from former OEM Linux distributor Linspire and Mark Shuttleworth, a well known Internet entrepreneur and founder of Canonical, the company behind the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system. The idea for the program came from a similar project run at Netscape in the '90s.
Mozilla used to reward researchers with $500 for every discovered bug that was determined to be critical or high according to its own severity ratings and remotely exploitable. In general, critical bugs are the ones allowing for arbitrary code execution on users's systems, while high ones are those leading to the exposure of highly-sensitive information.
