NETGEAR builds products using a common platform and framework. Multiple products sometimes inherit the same vulnerability. When determining bounty rewards, NETGEAR grants a single reward that accounts for all affected products.
Priority | Reward ($)

P2 | $600
P3 | $300

Note: NETGEAR uses CVSS to consistently score security vulnerabilities. Where discrepancies between the VRT and CVSS score exist, NETGEAR will defer to the CVSS score to determine the priority.
