Google offers $1m bounty for Chrome flaws

Google is going it solo at this years CanSecWest which not only means tougher regulations but bigger rewards, much bigger rewards in fact

Google are offering up to $1 million as part of their rewards program which will be launching at the annual CanSecWest security conference.

 

Each year large companies traditionally offer large bounties for those that can find genuine bugs and flaws in their software, in this case any exploits that can be found in Google Chrome.

If you're one of those lucky enough to find a full Chrome 'exploit' (meaning you can trace every aspect of it) then you could be in the running to bag a cool $60k, of course if you find more than one then Google could give you up to $1 million.

On the other hand if you're only able to find a 'partial exploit' or an exploit that could effect multiple browsers then Google's feeling charitable and will still offer a hardly paltry $20,000 or $40,000 reward.

All winners regardless of reward will also receive a Google Chromebook for their troubles.
