Bug bounty programs pay people for finding bugs in code.

Mozilla has increased payouts for its bug bounty program.


Mozilla has increased payouts for its bug bounty program, while adding new websites and services to the list in order to draw more interest from bug hunters.

The company said it has doubled all Web payouts for finding critical, core, and other bugs on Mozilla sites, and tripled payouts for identifying remote code execution exploits on critical sites.

New sites and services Mozilla has added to the bug bounty program include Autograph, a cryptographic signature service that signs Mozilla products; the Lando automatic code-landing service; the Phabricator code manager for reviewing Firefox code changes, and the Taskcluster task execution framework.
