Re: Great step!
I think the pressure's on for companies to pony up with bug bounties. I keep flashing back to Dino Dai Zovi/Charlie Miller/Alexander Sotirov's "No More Free Bugs" banner and meme from a few years ago that started this shift. Overall, there are fewer significant vulns to find in major software, so some bugs are definitely more valuable and bounty-worthy than others. Not all companies are ready for this, obviously, but it's definitely a seismic shift with these free vuln disclosure program tools and online tools for bug bounty programs.

Re: Great step!
Great story, Kelly! I wonder, though, if the proliferation of bug bounties is eroding the notion of "responsible disclosure" and the revelation of vulnerabilities for the simple reason of protecting users. Do you (and others here) think that tomorrow's security researchers will no longer disclose their findings unless they are properly paid?

Re: Great step!
A big takeaway here is there are now (free) tools for organizations that want to set up a professional and organized process for fielding security vulnerability reports, as well as a potential avenue for setting up a bug bounty program (for a fee). As for researchers, it's a safe way to report & potentially sell their findings.

Great step!
This is great news to hear!  In the past, I can remember thinking to myself, should I tell Microsoft about this bug or just keep it to myself.  The fear of being sued was, and in some cases still, very real.
