Apple’s bug bounty program is now hospitable all security researchers, and it now also covers macOS, tvOS, watchOS and iCloud. The tech giant’s bug bounty wont to be invite-only and exclusively offered payouts for iOS bugs.
A few months ago, however, the corporate revealed that it’s expanding the program’s scope and paying up to $1 million in rewards. vulnerabilities that would cause network attacks without user interaction have the very best possible payouts, starting from $250,000 to $1 million.
In order to be eligible for a gift, the difficulty must be found within the latest publicly available versions of the company’s software and, if relevant, the newest hardware.
Researchers who find issues in developers and public betas could also get a 50% bonus, probably because discovering them will allow the corporate to raise a fix before they land on most users’ devices.
Apple has stringent requirements to be able to claim rewards, including the submission of functional exploits for the issues being reported.
