Mozilla Foundation paid out $2,500 in bounties for a German man who found five flaws in its software. The Mozilla cash-for-bugs program rewards researchers with $500 for each flaw they find in their software.
Michael Krax, who lives in Germany, received five bug bounties for a total of $2,500, Thursday. The bugs identified by Krax, said Mozilla, related to chrome privileges. Chrome is developer-speak for the parts of the user interface outside of a window's content area, such as toolbars and menus.
