Mozilla to pay bounty on bugs

Tuesday, 3 August 2004, 1:36 PM EST

Users who identify and report serious security vulnerabilities involving Mozilla are to be rewarded for finding bugs in the open source Web browser software.

The Mozilla Security Bug Bounty Program, launched yesterday, promises a reward of $500 to anyone who finds a "critical" security bug in Mozilla. What constitutes critical will be judged by the Mozilla Foundation staff. Linux software developer Linspire and Mark entrepreneur Shuttleworth have issued seed funding to support the initiative, to be supplemented by donations from Mozilla supporters. The first $5,000 in community contributions will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Shuttleworth.
