Google Increases Bonus Amount for Bug Finders

Google is pretty confident in Chrome’s lack of bugs, so they’re putting even more money where their giant, collective mouth is. The Chromium Vulnerability Rewards Program is adding bonuses of $1,000 or more on top of the original rewards for those who find “particularly exploitable” bugs, ones that affect both Chrome and Chromium, or ones that reside in areas considered to be stable. Some of the bigger contributions to the program have earned upwards of $10,000. Google, being the nice guys that they are, have retroactively applied the new bonuses to two recent bug finds.

According to Google, there have been significantly fewer bug reports lately, which they see as a testament to the stability of Chrome. They’re not done perfecting their baby, however, which is why the cash reward has been upped.
