One of the most watched pornography websites in the world, YouPorn teams up with the ever so popular HackerOne to launch a bug bounty program with rewards offering up to $25,000.
This mature entertainment website is just another one of the latest brands to choose to have their networks tested by the white hat hackers to keep themselves bugs free and kill bugs if they managed to find any.
The company behind this site says that they want to make sure their online visitors are as safe as possible while visit their site. Therefore, depending on the level of severity of the bug or issue found, hackers will be rewarded from $50 to $25,000, the latter, of course, for very critical weaknesses that are found in their systems.
From Alexa ranks, you can find that YouPorn stands at 230th of most visited websites in the world. And the website claims to achieve around about a billion video views each month. With numbers as big as those, it’s no surprise the company behind the website wants to make sure it is safe for the safe.
Looks like the YouPorn is following in steps of its sister company Pornhub which launched its own bug bounty program last yeat for the very same reasons.
“We encourage the researchers to reach out to us and let us know if they find any potential issues, and we will be very happy to work to resolve the issue they found. We guarantee that they are to be fairly rewarded for their time and effort,” said YouPorn vice president Brad Burns.
Bug bounty programs have become increasingly popular over the past few years. On top of companies that run their own programs, such as Google and Facebook, for instance, HackerOne helps companies across the world test out the safety of their systems.
Google, for example, paid $3 million in rewards last year alone, putting the number at $9 million since the program’s inception in 2010.
