Google pays bug hunter $3,133 for single bug

Posted on Thursday, January 20 2011 @ 18:41:53 CET by

Neowin reports Google has paid a "leet" bug hunter $3,133 for finding a singel bug in the Chrome browser:
It seems that Google is very keen to squish bugs in its Chrome browser; so much so in fact that it has paid one researcher $3,133 for finding a single bug. Researcher Sergey Glazunov discovered a flaw related to "stale pointer in speech handling." This apparently affects the code in the application which handles allocation of RAM. Google's Chrome programming manager, Jason Kersey had this to say:

"We’re delighted to offer our first “elite” $3,133 Chromium Security Reward to Sergey Glazunov. Critical bugs are harder to come by in Chrome, but Sergey has done it. Sergey also collects a $1337 reward and several other rewards at the same time, so congratulations Sergey!"

This is the first time that a critical bug has been discovered since Google launched the scheme in December last year. According to Infoworld, all in all Google paid Glazunov $7,470, and in total $14,000 to various researchers including him.
