Bugcrowd is excited to announce our July 2016 Hall of Fame winners! Apologies for the delay in posting this, but we spent all last week in Las Vegas at Black Hat/DEFCON!

Once again, mert has topped the June leaderboard with his amazing work across our platform. Following up, we’re happy to have VINOTHKUMAR in second place, and krbtgt rounding out the top three. To thank our top performers for their hard work, Bugcrowd is pleased to announce that all three researchers will receive bonuses for their performance.

  1. mert – 513 points – $2,500 bonus 
  2. VINOTHKUMAR – 462 bonus – $1,500 bonus
  3. krbtgt – 300 points – $1,000 bonus


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

High severity bugs that result in critical security impact such as remote code execution or elevation of privilege earn the most kudos points – check out our blog for a break down of points and priority, 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 July. We look forward to the August Hall of Fame results!
