EP004: Bug Hunters | HACKING GOOGLE

They’re high schoolers, lawyers, IT professionals, and hobbyists. And they’ve made millions hacking Google in their free time.

Over the last decade, Google’s Bug Hunter Program has rewarded thousands of people from 84 different countries over $35 million to hunt down over 12,000 bugs in Google products. Their motives vary – cash, clout, curiosity – but their mission is the same: find undiscovered vulnerabilities.
