  1. Adult content sites are often considered risqué, err... risky, in terms of security but over at Pornhub, security is a top priority. The site, which enjoys some 60 million daily visitors, has reached out to renowned vulnerability disclosure company HackerOne to create its very own bug bounty program.

    In exchange for the responsible disclosure of an unknown issue relating to security vulnerabilities found on Pornhub’s website, the company will pay a minimum of $50 and up to a maximum of $25,000. Naturally, reward amounts will vary depending upon the severity of the vulnerability reported.

    In order to qualify for a reward, you must be the first to report the vulnerability, send a clear textual description of the bug along with steps to reproduce it, include things like screenshots or proof of concept code when applicable and disclose the vulnerability directly and exclusively through the bounty program.

    Pornhub Vice President Corey Price said that just like other major tech players have been doing as of late, they’re tapping some of the most talented security researchers as a proactive and precautionary measure to ensure not only the security of their site but that of their users. Price added that the bug bounty program is in addition to its own team of dedicated developers and security experts.

    HackerOne is a reputable disclosure company whose clients include The Tor Project, Uber, Airbnb, Twitter, Yahoo and even the Department of Defense.
