Google has announced that it will reward up to 30 thousand dollars who discover vulnerabilities in navigating Chrome. These rewards are part of the Vulnerability Rewards Program launched in 2010.
The program has received over 8,500 reports since its inception. The rewards given by Google in total already exceed $ 5 million.
The more detailed the report, the greater the reward.
Google has a tier where it details security flaws and the amounts paid to those who discover them. A simple failure can have a base reward of 500 to 1000 dollars. If you submit a detailed report and show how the failure works, your 'prize' is increased considerably.
It all depends on the flaw you find and the way you send it to Google. If you have programming and code skills, you can try your luck, maybe earn a few euros in the process.
Bluetooth protocol revealed a security hole
In a related situation, a vulnerability has been discovered in the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol. The consequence of this failure is the leakage of user data on various Apple and Microsoft devices.
However, the report by the Universities of Boston, Switzerland and Stockholm indicates that this failure did not affect Android. This is because the code that Android phones send to Bluetooth devices is always changing, counteracting the security breach.
