  1. mongo – 1039 points – $2,500 bonus
  2. blum – 746 points – $1,500 bonus
  3. Nikaiw – 465 points – $1,000 bonus



Think you have what it takes to come out on top?

High severity bugs that result in critical security impact like remote code execution or elevation of privilege earn the most kudos points – check out our blog for a points and priority break down and read more discussion about why an IDOR can be anywhere from a P1 to a P3 on the Bugcrowd Forum. Submitting high severity bugs not only gets you bigger rewards, it can also help you get invited to private bounty programs faster – check out A Look At Private Program Invites to learn more about how to get chosen for private programs.

Thanks again to all of the Bugcrowd researchers for all of their hard work in January. We look forward to the May Hall of Fame results!

In addition to our monthly leaderboard prizes, we run ad-hoc contests from time to time. Currently, we’re running a short term contest for mobile researchers. From April 1st to June 30th every valid and non-duplicate mobile vulnerability submitted will be entered into a raffle to win $1000. 

Each valid submission counts towards an additional entry into the contest. That’s right. If you submit five valid bugs you will get 5 entries to win $1000! In addition, by submitting valid mobile vulnerabilities, you may qualify to receive invitations to private mobile testing programs.
