Exodus Intelligence has started a vulnerability acceptance program in which it will accept vulnerabilities submitted by security researchers around the world. Security researchers can submit their vulnerability findings to the Exodus Intelligence Program and their work will be compensated.
Company also said that researchers will have to wait for 10 business days to get the reply and see whether their research would be rewarded.
“As Exodus Intelligence does not support any products of our own, we are interested not only in code execution issues, but also vulnerabilities that other acquisition programs may not be (local vulnerabilities, memory disclosures, techniques),” the company’s representatives explained.
This program helps customers to show address security holes that are likely to be exploited. Company will not accept any vulnerability which is only exploitable in theories.
Company will also offer $20,000 yearly bonuses for the top 4 researchers. It will also call 5 security rsearchers to take part in a collaborative hacking event where they’ll be able to work alongside other experts.
So this is a good chance for security researchers to get an exposure along with earn some money. But this program is not for the researchers from North Korea, Iran, Cuba or Syria (these countries are not accepted). Go and register for a new account and submit your work.
