Samsung Launches Bug Bounty Program which will Pay Rewards of up to $200,000
The company will also reward those who will find vulnerabilities in Bixby, Samsung Pay, Samsung Account, Samsung Pass, and other services. The amount paid starts from $200. This reward depends on the severity of the bug and the researcher’s “ability to provide proof of concept.”
Other than Samsung, many other big companies like, Google, Microsoft and Facebook has also lunched such programs earlier. However, Samsung has started its pilot project back in January 2016.
As we all know that Samsung has suffered a lot due to failure of its Note 7. This failure was in terms of cost and customer’s trust. We can say that this bug bounty program will help Samsung to regain its customer’s trust.
Anyways stay tuned to get more updates about Samsung.
