    Now there's a bug bounty program for the whole Internet



    Sponsored by Microsoft and Facebook, program pays researchers big cash rewards.


    Microsoft and Facebook are sponsoring a new program that pays big cash rewards to whitehat hackers who uncover security bugs threatening the stability of the Internet at large.
    The Internet Bug Bounty program, which in some cases will pay $5,000 or more per vulnerability, is sponsored by Microsoft and Facebook. It will be jointly controlled by researchers from those companies along with their counterparts at Google, security firm iSec Partners, and e-commerce website Etsy. To qualify, the bugs must affect software implementations from a variety of companies, potentially result in severely negative consequences for the general public, and manifest themselves across a wide base of users. In addition to rewarding researchers for privately reporting the vulnerabilities, program managers will assist with coordinating disclosure and bug fixes involving large numbers of companies when necessary.
