Uber is the latest company to launch its own bug bounty program for white hat hackers with rewards of up to $10,000 for discovering serious flaws. From May 1, security researchers will have three months to research and disclose any vulnerabilities they can find in Uber’s websites and apps. Uber is making public what it calls a “treasure map” of its code to help security researchers examine the code for any issues. The bug bounty program was previously in beta but will now be open to anyone to try. Multiple bugs found will result in bonus rewards to encourage hackers to stay loyal to Uber and continue scrutinizing its security for the better. Some of the vulnerabilities it is looking for include cross-site scripting and SQL injection. Hackers will have to privately disclose their findings to Uber and only after the bug has been patched will the details be made public.
