Intel touts bug bounties to hardware hackers
Intel has launched its first bug bounty program, offering rewards of up to $30,000.
The chip maker has partnered with specialist bug bounty outfit HackerOne to create a scheme that aims to encourage hackers to hunt for flaws in Intel’s hardware, firmware and software. Intel will pay up to $30,000 for critical hardware vulnerabilities (less for firmware or software holes). The more severe the impact of the vulnerability and the harder it is to mitigate, the bigger the payout.
