Intel Joins The Bug Bounty Party

Intel Joins The Bug Bounty Party

Intel is offering up to US$30,000 to researchers and investigators who detect flaws in their software, firmware and hardware. Following on from Microsoft’s announcement of an expansion of their bug bounty program, it seems to be a good time to get into the bug bounty hunting business.

The program is being run for Intel by HackerOne.

Bugs are rated on a four-point scale ranging from Low to Critical severity across three areas – software, firmware and hardware. The smallest bounty on offer is for low severity issues found in software and firmware, with critical bugs in hardware good for a US$30,000 pay day.

McAfee Security products are not covered in the new program.
