Bugcrowd is excited to announce a special Program Challenge for the month of October to celebrate Cybersecurity Awareness! We are running a set of challenges that get progressively more difficult each week. 

You can choose to complete one challenge or all four! 

Winners will be evaluated at the end of October and will feature the challenge champions in a blog post in mid-November. Each week will be evaluated independently for the swag so be sure to get your submissions in early!
