Mozilla Extends Bug Bounty Program to Web Apps

Kara Reeder

According to Computerworld, Mozilla has expanded its vulnerability rewards program to include Mozilla's Web properties. The news comes on the heels of a similar move by Google.


Mozilla encourages researchers to download the open source code for its Web applications to probe for problems. However, the company asks that researchers attack the software on their own servers, rather than use automated tools on the sites to find the problems.


In July, Mozilla increased the bounty it pays researchers from $500 to a maximum of $3,000.
