Google has dramatically increased the bug bounties it is willing to pay researchers and developers who find flaws in its Chrome browser. It tripled the top payout it offers from $5,000 to $15,000, but to get that top reward, you’ll need to find a Sandbox escape, write up a high-quality report and provide a working exploit.

The company first began its bug bounty program back in 2010 with a top payout of $1,337. Since then, it has paid more than $1.25 million to individuals who found more than 700 bugs.

At its Pwnium events, Google has paid as much as $50,000 to those who found security vulnerabilities in its software.
