The tech giant’s bug bounty program is alive and well, and it is only getting bigger.

Bug hunting may never have been so lucrative: Google has revealed that it dished out a record $6.5 million in 2019 – that is, double the amount paid out the previous year – in rewards for researchers who successfully uncovered vulnerabilities across the search-to-advertising giant’s vast range of products and services.

Google’s Vulnerability Reward Programs (VRP) have been running for a decade now, providing cash prizes to experts who detect security bugs and report them “responsibly” for the company to fix. The idea is to find out about potential breaches before they happen.
