The South Korean technology company has just announced the launch of a bug bounty program.
No doubt the safety of mobile devices is one of the biggest obsessions of brands and Samsung is no exception in that section.
In order to increase the security of its terminals, the Seoul company has launched a rewards program , traditionally known as a “bug bounty”.
Specifically, Samsung will offer financial rewards from $ 20,000 to a maximum of $ 200,000 , for those who manage to discover significant vulnerabilities in their mobile devices , both from the point of view of hardware and software.
In terms of hardware it is necessary that the vulnerability is a new equipment , which means that those devices before 2016 will not be part of the initiative.
On the other hand, software includes any application developed by Samsung Mobile or third party packages that have been approved by the Asian company.
In that sense, they clarify that only vulnerabilities in services that are currently active and applications that have been fully updated will be eligible for rewards, excluding methods such as phishing, clickjacking or debugging attacks.
