Pornhub launches bug bounty programme on HackerOne

At a time when several adult sites are being victimised by cyber-attacks, Pornhub is offering white hats between $50 (£35) and $25,000 (£17,300) for reporting qualifying vulnerabilities.  

Pornhub published its bug bounty programme on HackerOne on 10 May, according to Pornhub's HackerOne account page.   

To qualify for a reward one must be the first to report the vulnerability, send a clear text description of the report along with the steps to reproduce the vulnerability, and include attachments, such as, screenshots or proof of concept code, the company said in its policy. 

The researchers must also only disclose the vulnerability directly and exclusively to Pornhub, the policy said.

“We strive to work with skilled security researchers to improve the security of our service,” the company said in its policy.
