Crowdsourcing Security Fixes With Bug Bounties | Avast
What are bug bounties?
Every company needs to find and fix flaws in its products or services. As software becomes more complex, feature-rich and integrated, it gets harder – if not impossible – to eliminate all bugs. Now that users have accepted an always-online ecosystem and live-patching of already released products, vulnerabilities in code need to be hunted on a continuous basis, and found and fixed quickly to reduce zero-day threats and protect sensitive data.
