Google Increases Bounties For Serious Code Execution Bugs found in Google Product

Google Increases Vulnerability Bounties In Anniversary of Vulnerability Reward Program
In Anniversary of Vulnerability Reward Program Google has officially declared that the company is increasing its bounties for serious code execution bugs found in production versions of Google products. This announcement is made through the official blog of Google Online Security. The blog post says that the programme has been a great success so far, with over 780 vulnerability reports being received from around 200 individuals. In the first year of the programme's existence, Google has paid out around $460,000 in total. Bounties are only paid to individuals if the vulnerabilities have been disclosed in a responsible manner, allowing Google to fix them before hackers can build proof-of-concept attack code. 
At the same time, Google has decided to decrease rewards for flaws found in products that have been acquired by the company but have not yet been integrated into the main Google product line. The company says that it will decide what vulnerabilities qualify as high risk issues and will be paying bounties based on that assessment.
According to Google Online Security the bounties will be -
  • $20,000 for qualifying vulnerabilities that the reward panel determines will allow code execution on our production systems. 
  • $10,000 for SQL injection and equivalent vulnerabilities; and for certain types of information disclosure, authentication, and authorization bypass bugs. 
  • Up to $3,133.7 for many types of XSS, XSRF, and other high-impact flaws in highly sensitive applications.
