Mozilla pays premiums for reports of vulnerabilities
The Mozilla Foundation has followed Google's example by expanding its rewards program for reports of vulnerabilities in its Web applications. The reward for reported holes ranges from $500 for vulnerabilities with a high degree of severity, up to $3,000 for highly critical vulnerabilities.
The web sites under examination include bugzilla.mozilla.org, www.firefox.com, www.getfirefox.com, addons.mozilla.org, services.addons.mozilla.org, versioncheck.addons.mozilla.org and download.mozilla.org. In particular, cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery vulnerabilities and remote and local file inclusion are the focus of the program. There are no prizes for reporting DoS vulnerabilities. A FAQ explains the details of the program.
Google had recently launched a similar program, but found that after two weeks it was forced to clarify which holes qualified for a reward.
