Cash rewards to users who find bugs in different software is not a new tactic from the manufacturers.
Mozilla, for example, has already such a strategy for some time. Now came the turn of Google to pay the bugs “discoverers” in Google Chrome.
Google transformed this into a competition. Mozilla promised $3,000 to those who find bugs in Firefox. Google has raised the amount, promising to those who find critical problems in Chrome exactly 3133.7 U.S. dollars.
For hackers, the browser manufacturers are offering “Easy Money”. Bugs in web browsers are almost certain to exist.
