Reddit announces that it is taking its bug bounty program public. The popular community forum and social news platform conducted a private program with HackerOne for the past three years, and now aims to improve its defenses, more quickly address vulnerabilities, and keep the platform secure by going public.
The company in a press release said, “We’ve seen great engagement and success to date, having awarded $140,000 in bounties across 300 reports covering the main reddit.com platform, which worked well for our limited scope during the private program. With our continued growth and visibility, we’re now ready to make the program public and expand participation to anyone wanting to make a meaningful security impact on Reddit.”
