Time for the first Hall of Fame announcement of 2016!  Big recognition goes to hydrantlabs, who topped the January leaderboard with 280 points earned through multiple P1 and P2 submissions.

To thank our top performers for their hard work, Bugcrowd is pleased to announce that the following three researchers will receive bonuses for their performance.

  1. hydrantlabs – 280 points – $2,500 bonus
  2. Private – 245 points – $1,500 bonus
  3. mongo – 234 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 February Hall of Fame results!
