Sony: Big bounty for vulnerabilities in PlayStation and PSN
Many hardware manufacturers and service providers offer you money if you report any security holes found. This is now also done by Sony on the PlayStation. It is believed that working with the community of security researchers could create a “safer place to play”.
They partnered with HackerOne and invited the community, players, and everyone else to test the security of PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Network. The Bug Bounty program offers rewards for various vulnerabilities, including critical issues on the PS4. There are bounties starting at $ 50,000 for finding critical security holes for the PS4. So far, the bug bounty program has been carried out privately with some experts, but believes that a public program is positive for security.
