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 breakdown of points and priority and for other great resources on our blog and 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!
