It’s only been 5 months since Darkarnium joined Bugcrowd, but in that short time he’s shot his way up our all-time leaderboard to #113 and impressed us all with his 100% acceptance rate and 1.5 average priority. Darkarnium is a bit of a “sniper”, the bugs that he submits are often a high priority and high impact.
This week’s Researcher Spotlight is actually on two researchers which make up a team. Internetwache is one of the most active groups in the bug bounty researcher scene, finding vulnerabilities in Facebook, eBay, Apple, Twilio and many others. The team consists of Sebastian Neef and Tim Schäfers, and they were both kind of enough to participate in this week’s spotlight interview.
The security researcher community at Bugcrowd is quite diverse with backgrounds and experience of all shapes and sizes. This week’s researcher spotlight is on Casey Dunham, a security professional with a computer science background and experience as a software developer. In our interview below, you will see how Casey’s background informs his approach to security testing and enables his success.
We are excited to announce the newest member of the Bugcrowd Board of Directors, industry icon and veteran driver of cybersecurity innovation, Art Coviello Jr.
Bugcrowd’s view has always been that the economic and resourcing model of the bug bounty programs pioneered by Netscape, Google and Facebook is more that just the “latest and greatest tech-company fad.” It’s a necessary and inevitable evolution in security assessment, and it’s benefits will impact the entire IT ecosystem.
