Bug bounty Payments

August 14, 2019 12:40pm CST
Did you know? There is another way to get paid from big websites? One of my friend got paid two days back for pointing out security vulnerabilities. The amount was quite impressive. It was around $8,000. He was a hacker. And work in IT security of a company. He actually targeted 10 websites. But only one website paid him. His 1 month hard work paid off. How was your day?
