Google increases the rewards they offer to people who find vulnerabilities in the Google Chrome web browser. The discovery of a critical Google Chrome bug can earn you $20,000.
If until recently Google used to pay $3,133,7 dollars for Google Chrome bugs, the company is now offering $20,000 for the discovery of critical vulnerabilities that allow hackers to run malware code in the web browser.
While the discovery of a critical bug can now earn you $20,000, Google is going to pay $10,000 to whoever discovers vulnerabilities that allow hackers to inject SQL code or bypass log in protocols.
While the money offered from Google is decent, there are hackers who are not interested in Google’s rewards because they can sell vulnerability information to other hackers, who are willing to pay more than Google because they can use them to illegally make a lot of money.
