In-flight Internet and entertainment service provider Gogo has kicked off a bug bounty program using Bugcrowd’s crowdsourced community to find exploits and vulnerabilities in its ground-based and airborne systems.Gogo asked that researchers also provide remedial measures with every vulnerability found.

Gogo has forbid researchers from DDoSing its sites in their testing.
