Bugcrowd is excited to announce our May 2016 Hall of Fame winners!  Big recognition goes to mert, who topped the May leaderboard with an astouding 786 points earned through multiple last minute 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. mert – 786 points – $2,500 bonus 
  2. hydrantlabs – 482 bonus – $1,500 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 May. We look forward to the June Hall of Fame results!
