This post is written by Bugcrowd engineers, Paul Friedman and Daniel Trauner. Bugcrowd is the pioneer and innovator of managed bug bounty programs, and nothing makes that more obvious than the success of our own program, which is celebrating its fifth birthday later this year. Since our program’s launch in September 2013, we’ve received over
Earlier this week, Threatpost reported NETGEAR had fixed 50 vulnerabilities in its routers, switches, and NAS devices — many of which were reported via the company’s bug bounty program,
The SecureDrop engineering team welcomes the contributions of security researchers. SecureDrop is relied on by sources to talk with journalists at dozens of news organizations, many of whom are taking significant risks to bring information to the public eye. We want to do everything we can to make the whistleblowing process as safe for them
We’re excited to announce our bug bounty program is moving from private to public! Dash is opening up its doors to more than 60,000 registered and verified Bugcrowd security experts around the world to detect issues on behalf of Dash and be rewarded in bug bounty payments. That means more vulnerabilities are discovered and fixed,
Jet.com takes security seriously.

Researchers would report a bug and the vendor – not all but certainly more than a few – would drag its feet in patching the problem. Then, the researcher would make the findings public and the
Our customers are leaders when it comes to security; they understand the value of harnessing the power of the crowd and the creativity of thousands of researchers that think like the adversary. Password manager technology 1Password is no exception.
At the beginning of this year we released our ‘Defensive Vulnerability Pricing Model’ that answers the question “what’s a bug worth?”. This guide outlines how much organizations should budget for crowdsourced security programs, and what reward ranges attract the right talent. In short, this guide, informed by tens of thousands of vulnerability submissions and years
