Google offers cash for finding Web security holes Deep Tech - CNET News

Under the Chrome vulnerability-finding bounty program, the company already has been paying varying sums to those who locate holes in the browser. Also part of the package has been mention on the Chromium security hall of fame and a public thank-you to those providing Google with sustained security help.

The duplication of the initial program is geared to uncover "any serious bug which directly affects the confidentiality or integrity of user data," members of Google's security team said in a blog post yesterday. Payments are commensurate with the seriousness of the vulnerability and include $500, $1,000, $1,337, and $3,133.70 (that's "leet" and "eleet" for the leetspeak-impaired).
