A Swedish kid found a security hole in google translate, it was a xss vuln.
Anyways he reported it to google and they gave him 3000$.

So what could he do with google instead reporting the bugg well if a site has a xss vuln it is possible to redirect users to another site. He would earn millions in just days if he redirected to affiliate links.

here is the news link. http://www.expressen.se/nyheter/mathias-12-hittade-googles-sakerhetshal/

what would you do speaking in term for seo/traffic benefits, if you could redirect google translate traffic to any site.

Holy shit! 3000 Euros!?

...Would have been a better spin for PR if they contributed a little bit more towards a post-secondary education. Cheap fucks. Probably wouldn't even be eligible for internship when he's older because of integrity.

He should of showed Google via exploiting the vulnerability. Don't ruin anybody's fun or profit directly from it. Get people's attention by maybe redirecting them to his own page that is telling anybody that reaches it to contact Google and tell them about it. That way he can get donations from anybody who reads the news article. :D

What he said. If you mess with Google, they'll be at your door in 20 minutes with a battery ram to bust down your door and shove up your you know what... Since it won't let me post it!
