Google Boosts Bug Bounty

Not to be outdone by the Open Sourcerers at Mozilla, Google has raised the bounty it offers to security researchers who report holes in its Chrome browser. The top reward for a single bug is now $3,133.70–$1796 more than it used to be and $133.70 more than the $3,000 fee Mozilla began paying for security bugs last week. Why the odd number? It translates to “elite” in “leet” talk (if you ignore the trailing zero).
