Course Description

Bug bounty hunting  refers to bug bounty programs offered by many websites and software developers by which individuals can receive recognition and compensation for reporting bugs, especially those pertaining to exploits and vulnerabilities. These programs allow the developers to discover and resolve bugs before the general public is aware of them, preventing incidents of widespread abuse. Bug bounty programs have been implemented by a large numbers of organizations, including Mozilla, Facebook, Yahoo!, Google, Reddit, Square, and Microsoft. Companies outside the technology industry, including traditionally conservative organizations like the Department of Defense, have started using bug bounty programs. The Pentagon’s use of bug bounty programs is part of a posture shift that has seen several US Government Agencies reverse course from threatening White hat (computer security) hackers with legal recourse to inviting them to participate as part of a comprehensive vulnerability disclosure framework or policy.
