Android Bug Bounty Program Paid out $550,000 Last Year

Last June, Google began paying bounties to researchers who discover security vulnerabilities in its Android mobile development platform. Since then, it has paid $550,000 to 82 researchers who found 250 vulnerabilities. The highest-paid participant in the program was Peter Pi, who received $75,750 for 26 vulnerabilities.

Now the company has announced that it is dramatically increasing the bounties it offers. A remote kernel exploit is now worth $30,000 instead of $20,000, and a remote exploit that leads to a compromise of verified boot now earns a bounty of $50,000, up from $20,000 last year.
