The Pentagon has received over 50,000 vulnerability reports since 2016


The US Department of Defense announced on Friday that it has processed 50,000 reports received as part of its ongoing vulnerability disclosure program (VDP), which began in November 2016.

The program, a first in federal government history, was launched in response to the success of the ‘Hack the Pentagon’ bug bounty program on HackerOne, which was followed by similar programs covering Air Force, Marine Corps, Army, and Defense Travel System assets.

Since then, the DoD has run over 40 bug bounty programs in collaboration with HackerOne, Bugcrowd, and Synack, as well as a continuous ‘Hack the Pentagon’ bug bounty program, which allows white hat hackers to submit vulnerability reports all year.
