Deutsche Post to Offer Bounties for Bugs

Kara Reeder

According to Computerworld, Deutsche Post will award bounties for bugs researchers find in its E-Postbrief secure message service.


In what is being called the Deutsche Post Security Cup, research teams will be seeded with $3,800. They must use their own tools and promise to not touch any private data they may come across. Researchers must also agree not to disclose any vulnerabilities they find until December.


Researchers can earn bounties of $6,400 and $1,300 for major and minor bugs, respectively, with a four-member jury that includes Jennifer Granick, the civil liberties director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, classifying the reported vulnerabilities.
