Have you ever found a bug (security issue) while surfing the net? Well if you should happen to find a bug in Google Chrome Browser and you could be paid. Google is now paying $500. for bugs but if you should find a really good one you can make as much as $1337.00

Chris Evans of Chrome Security wrote:

New vulnerabilities in Chrome, Chromium -- the open-source project that Google uses to craft Chrome -- and plug-ins that ship with Chrome, such as Google Gears, are eligible for bounties, said Evans. Chrome OS is not part of the program at the moment, but it may be added in the future. Bugs that are ranked "high" or "critical" in Chrome's rating system get preference, he added, but others may be considered.

"While we have a bunch of great engineers at Google who spend their whole day trying to break into Chrome, we know there are lots of smart people outside of the company and we want their help too," Evans said in an e-mail reply to questions Friday. "We always know we can do more." About ten bugs submitted in 2009 would have been rewarded with a bounty payment had the program been in place, Evans added.

Re: Google Chrome Bug-Bounty Program

The only bug I'll catch maybe the one that crawls across the screen. Sad
