Frequently Asked Questions
What is this about?
If finding a security bug is the work of L337 (elite). We believe fixing security bugs and secure programming are the art of L33337 (super duper elite). Programming secure software and fixing security issues are a lot of hard work and requires next level of coding skills.
Why is something like fixbounty needed?
There is a notable difference between the numbers of security issue reports and the frequency of patching those issues. There is an extreme shortage of skilled secure software developers. With fixbounty, our goal is to make it easy for these rare skilled developers to find and help patch security issues.
What and how would I get as a bounty?
Your bounty is pride on making the internet a safer place! :P
We are looking for ways to motivate participation...but there is nothing to award at the moment.
