[QUOTE=CPUSlayer;2539612]I honestly don’t believe the ‘pay for flaw’ program is going to make a difference. Why would someone settle for $2000, when they could sell or exploit the flaw and make $2,000,000? Personally, I would sell the flaw to the highest bidder.[/QUOTE]
Well, you’re not going to make any friends with that attitude I’m slightly concerned that I have to share the same planet with you, and worse, the other million or so people like you.
Obviously they are targeting the HONEST hackers & enthusiasts, and not the hackers, like CPUslayer, that would sell their grandmothers to the Soylent Abattoir for a few pennies the day before their mother hands them their weekly pocket money …
It’s a great idea, it promotes awareness of flaws, and people casually finding flaws have an incentive to submit bug reports (asap) rather than just dismissing them as a minor flaw and assuming that google will find/fix it eventually anyway.
