So what are these hackers, or hacktivists if you believe they’re helping people, trying to protect Pornhub against exactly? In 2015, Pornhub was laden with malvertising. This is when malware creators make ads that they push through advertising systems to bring users to sites that want to sell them fake crap, download malicious programs to their computer like ransomware, or just to steal their user information that hackers like to put up for sale on the dark web. Pornhub wants to protect its users from getting harmed by malware so that they continue to use their site and so that they’re advertisers are always shown, and fake ads never come through the system. Get it now?

Basically, Pornhub and their affiliated properties are such a huge business now that they can afford to take extra precautions to make sure that all of their customers get the best experience possible. Much of the content on their main sites is free, so advertisements are extremely important. The site claims to get 60 million views every single day; it had 1.1 billion visitors in April alone. That’s one-seventh of the world’s population! It’s the third most popular pornography site in the world, and it’s the 38th most popular website.

Pornhub’s Vice President Cory Price said that the bounty program is necessary because it will “protect and enhance the site for our 60 million daily visitors.” That’s a lot of people he’s looking out for. You can learn more about the bounty program on the hacker site Hackerone.com if you’re feeling like Dog the Bounty Hunter. But work quick! All of the bugs may have been found by now.
