The State of Bug Bounty
The biggest difference between an unknown vulnerability and a known vulnerability, is the ability to take action on it.
Over the past year, there has been an increase of 21% in total vulnerabilities reported, and an increase of 36% in total bug bounty payouts.
Security leaders are beginning to realize that better awareness and information about disclosed vulnerabilities is critical to their operational success.
In its fourth iteration, the 2018 Bugcrowd State of Bug Bounty Report provides an inside look into the trends in crowdsourced security, and for the first time, a deep dive into the most common and emerging vulnerabilities found over the past year.
