Secret $250K Bug Bounty Program

BugCrowd this week launched a new bug bounty program that offers a top payout of $250,000, which is in line with Microsoft's highest award. Any security researcher can apply to participate unlike invite-only bug hunting programs. However, participation is open to only those actually selected for the program.

According to BugCrowd, security researchers with experience in virtual machine breakout, cross-instance manipulation, exploitation of host components, and advanced application security might want to consider applying for the program.
