Uber of­fers bounty to bug hunters

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

Uber Tech­nolo­gies Inc, the car-hail­ing ser­vice provider, is of­fer­ing a re­ward of up to $10,000 to hack­ers who are able to spot pos­si­ble bugs in its com­puter sys­tem. The San Fran­cisco-based tech­nol­ogy com­pany said it launched a pri­vate, beta bug bounty pro­gram last year for more than 200 se­cu­rity re­searchers, who in turn found nearly 100 bugs. As the bugs were fixed, help­ing Uber to im­prove se­cu­rity, the com­pany de­cided to kick off the “of­fi­cial bug bounty pro­gram”, or loy­alty re­ward pro­gram, to en­cour­age mem­bers of the se­cu­rity com­mu­nity to dig deep.
