Google launches program that pays hackers to hunt down Android security flaws
Android has an image problem. People think it’s unsafe, that’s it’s dangerous to use. It doesn’t help that its competitors perpetuate that idea. Despite all that Google has done over the years to dispel this myth, Android still gets a bad rap.
That kind of publicity isn’t good for business, which is why the company has announced a program that calls on hackers, security researchers, and developers to help find security flaws in Android.
