Google will pay you to find vulnerabilities in Chrome apps and extensions

Paying a bounty for vulnerabilities has become more commonplace. Last month, Google announced it was offering as a reward for Chrome OS vulnerability discoveries.However, around the same time, began making waves in the Chrome community. Lately, it has become a popular problem, causing Chrome users to question the of Google’s browser. Today, Google seems to have possibly recognized the severity of the problem, as the company will pay reward money for discovered vulnerabilities in both Chrome apps and extensions.”We will broaden the scope of our vulnerability reward program to also include all Chrome apps and extensions developed and branded as ‘by Google’.

In other words, only vulnerabilities found in the company’s own apps and extensions can earn money. This makes sense though, as extension and app writers could implement vulnerabilities on purpose, and have someone else report them to earn the money.
