Google is adding Android to its bug bounty program which pays security researchers for information about vulnerabilities in its products. “We’re launching Android Security Rewards to help reward the contributions of security researchers who invest their time and effort in helping us make Android more secure,” the company announced. “Through this program we provide monetary rewards and public recognition for vulnerabilities disclosed to the Android Security Team.”
