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).

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
