Nintendo to Offer Up to $20,000 for Anyone that Finds Switch Vulnerabilities
Nintendo has updated its HackerOne policy to include the Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo offers cash rewards between $100 and $20,000 for anyone who can find and report vulnerabilities in Nintendo’s latest console, as well as the Nintendo 3DS.
One of the other changes to the policy is that “Nintendo reserves the right to choose whether or not it will address any reported vulnerabilities.”
The HackerOne program launched in December. Since then three individuals have received bounties for discovering three Nintendo 3DS exploits.
Thanks Perfectly Nintendo.
