If you can bug PlayStation 4, Sony will give you a massive Rs 35 lakh, the company said. The Program has been launched so that Sony can deliver a safer place to play.
“The security of our products is a fundamental part of creating amazing experiences for our community,” Sony said in a blog post adding that “we recognize the valuable role that the research community plays in enhancing security, so we’re excited to announce our program for the broader community.”
The company has tied up with HackerOne for the program and is currently looking for bug reports in the PS4 system, OS, accessories, and PSN. Sony has divided the rewards into different categories - critical, high severity, medium severity, and low severity groups.
