Google is not a pioneer in reward programs for those who find a bug or security vulnerability in their software. However, it is important to note that the American company can pay a fortune to anyone who dedicates their time to this project.
Through your program Android Security Rewards, Google promises compensatory amounts that can amount to a million and a half dollars. But as expected, this amount will only be achieved under certain conditions.
Vulnerability present in chip Titan M could be worth a million dollars
Present on some Pixel smartphones, the chip Titan M is in charge of the security of these devices. This is in charge of a series of security procedures that aim to ensure that no one has tampered with vital smartphone information.
It is on this small component that lies the largest monetary compensation awarded by Google in its rewards program. To achieve this, hackers will have to discover a exploit continuous remote execution that compromises the integrity of the Titan M.
Google will also offer a 50% bonus to anyone who finds a bug in a specific version of Android. This means that if you fulfill these two requirements, you can receive an amount of 1.5 million dollars, about € 1.2 million.
There are other minor rewards that will be awarded to those who encounter minor vulnerabilities. Still, these are valued at $ 250,000 and can be accumulated.
It is worth remembering that this type of programs does not aim to encourage and reward the exploitation of vulnerabilities present in Android. The intention is that whoever is connected to this branch will discover them and report them to the Google security team.
With this information, the American company intends to increase the security of its operating system. So if you’re a security expert and want to make a small fortune, know all the details on the Google page.
