Following major companies and organizations, the non-profit group behind Tor Project, the largest online anonymity network that allows people to hide their true identity online, has finally launched a “Tor Bug Bounty Program”.
With the growing number of cyber attacks and violations, a significant number of companies and organizations have started the Bug Bounty program to encourage hackers, bug hunters and researchers to find and report errors in their services and be rewarded.
The Tor Project announced on Thursday joined hands with HackerOne to launch a public Tor bug Bounty program to encourage hackers and security researchers to find and report privately vulnerabilities that could compromise the anonymity network.
HackerOne is a bounty bug to start running insect rewards programs for companies such as Yahoo, Twitter, Slack, Dropbox, Uber, General Motors and also the US Department of Defense for the Pentagon Hack initiative.
Cash prize money rewards programs are granted by companies or organizations hackers and white researchers seeking serious security vulnerabilities on your website or products and then denouncing them in a responsible manner.
The Tor Project announced its intention to launch a public bugs program at the end of December 2015 during a speech at the Tor Project Chaos Communication Congress (CCC), held in Hamburg, Germany. However, the award-winning program last year.
The highest pay for defaults remained at $ 4,000 – bug hunters can earn between $ 2,000 and $ 4,000 for high-speed vulnerabilities, between $ 500 and $ 2,000 for medium-severity vulnerabilities and a minimum $ 100 for vulnerabilities Low stringency errors.
In addition, the least serious problems will be awarded a t-shirt, stickers and a mention in Tor’s Hall of Fame.
“Tor users around the world, including human rights activists, activists, lawyers, and investigators rely on the security of our software to be anonymous online,” said browser developer Georg Koppen in a blog. “Help us to protect them and keep them safe from surveillance, monitoring, and attacks.”
