Meta, the technology company known for their cutting edge hardware products, has recently announced an expansion to their Bug Bounty program. This includes specific payouts for security vulnerabilities found on the Quest Pro headset and Touch Pro controllers as well as other VR and non-VR hardware. The operation of finding any bugs is managed by security researchers who are rewarded in exchange for knowing these potential threats ahead of more serious issues arising.
The maximum payout available is $45,000 for major exploits such as remote code execution while smaller breaches can earn a minimum amount of $500 up to $3000 – all depending on the severity level assessed with physical health & safety risks considered at higher levels than privacy breaches due to their nature. In total Meta had 10,000 reports this year with around 750 getting rewards averaging at approximately$2,700 per qualifying bug from its Bug Bounty Program resulting in a payment of over $2 million across all participants.
