Bug Bounty Radar // The latest bug bounty programs for August 2022 | #cybersecurity | #cyberattack


New web targets for the discerning hacker

Summer is here in the northern hemisphere, but this hasn’t interrupted the steady stream of new bug bounty programs from hitting the market.

During the teaser for its new Lockdown Mode this month, Apple said vulnerabilities in the new anti-spyware tech can be disclosed via its Security Bounty program. Rewards of up to $2 million are on offer.

Lockdown Mode, which will ship with iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS Ventura, is described as “an extreme, optional protection for the very small number of users who face grave, targeted threats to their digital security”.

Australia’s Monash University has also established a new bug bounty program, which is aimed at shoring up its defenses amid a spate of cyber-attacks impacting the education sector.

Added to the mix this month are two new rewards programs for the burgeoning digital identity market, as Onfido partners with YesWeHack and India’s Aadhaar dips its toe in the water with a program of its own.

Aadhaar is world’s largest digital identity program that provides services to over 1.3 billion Indian residents. To take part in this new, private bug bounty, hackers must apply via the UIDAI website.

There’s a high bar for entry, too, as Aadhaar stipulates that “candidates should be listed in the top 100 of the bug bounty leaderboards such as HackerOne, Bugcrowd, or listed in the bounty programs conducted by reputable companies such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook, [or] Apple”.
