Mozilla updates Firefox bug bounty program

As part of its updated Firefox bug bounty program, Mozilla is offering increased rewards and payouts for bugs rated moderate in severity.

Mozilla announced on Tuesday that some changes have been made to the Firefox bug program, including increased rewards for identifying vulnerabilities and payouts for bugs rated moderate in severity.

According to a Tuesday announcement, researchers that identify vulnerabilities rated moderate in severity stand to earn between £321.94 and £1,287.76; however, Mozilla noted that not all of those bugs will qualify.

“Issues would come up where a vulnerability was interesting but was ultimately rated as moderate,” the announcement said. “From now on, we will officially be paying out on [some] moderate rated vulnerabilities.”

Additionally, Mozilla announced the official release of the Firefox Security Bug Bounty Hall of Fame, where researchers who identify vulnerabilities will get a little extra exposure. The website has been up for a bit, but was not officially announced until Tuesday.
