Look at porn, find the bugs, get paid

Read this article carefully because it gets pretty technical.

One of the largest, most popular porn palaces has implemented a security bug bounty in order to ensure that they’re websites are as secure and malware-free as possible. Pornhub.com gets tens of millions of visitors every single day, and they want to make sure that those customers don’t succumb to malvertising that can potentially steal money from Pornhub’s advertisers by redirecting users or just by annoying them into not visiting the site as much.

Hackers who help out the porn giant will be rewarded with actual cash ranging from $50 to $25,000 for various discoveries. But the caveat is that they have to find the problems and not just get stuck watching their content. Let’s find out how the bounty is faring!

Cyber attackers are targeting larger and larger websites to spread malware and malvertising to steal user information. They’re joining the ranks of less scandalous internet masters like Facebook and Google who are turning to ordinary users to find holes in their security so that they can be plugged up. The price is right for those who can inform the pornographic site about their flaws; the bug hunters can earn a lot of real world dough for their efforts.

The “bounty hunters” looking for security flaws on Pornhub.com and their affiliated websites must adhere to a strict set of rules in order to receive their reward including not dispersing the security flaw information to anyone else. No kissing and telling, I guess. But quite a few hackers have already found those flaws and are getting paid. User zephrfish was just rewarded with $500 for RCE Possible Via Video Manager Export using @ character in Video Title. I don’t know what that means either. The highest bounty awarded so far was $10,000. That’s not a bad pay day.
