Why bug bounty hunters love the thrill of the chase
Bounty hunters in the law enforcement field are often thought of as these long haired, wild men who will do whatever it takes to track down the person who has run afoul of the law.

Instead of tracking down perpetrators, bug bounty hunters are tracking down any vulnerabilities in companies’ sites.
