In celebration of its upcoming one year anniversary, we are thrilled to formally announce the Bugcrowd Researcher Council. Begun as a pilot program in November of 2016, Bugcrowd’s Researcher Success Team identified 5 Researchers to invite to a special kind of pilot feedback program; since then, the program has grown 200% and the Council members have given their valuable feedback on a variety of implemented improvements, including the Researcher Dashboard and the current ongoing improvements to tokenized search.
For the last two quarters, we’ve challenged our crowd to report vulnerabilities against the toughest targets our programs have to offer–thick client applications. Bounties that fall into this category include Avira (client software), AVG Technologies (client-side application), OWASP ZAP (desktop application) and several private programs.
