Google pays Chrome bug hunters

Google Chrome Bug HunterDid you know that people who research browser vulnerabilities can earn monetary rewards for their findings? I guess it's one of those things I never thought about. I assumed they had people on staff to do that kind of work, but the reality is that you can't always hire the best "bug finders" out there.

Google recently paid out $14,000 for 16 bugs that people found. One individual found 5 of them and earned $7,470. Not too shabby! It's people like them that help our browsers stay secure, so I'm glad Google and Mozilla Firefox are compensating people fairly.
