The Internet Bug Bounty Panel is awarding bounties for critical security vulnerabilities in popular, open source programming languages. Thanks to the hard work of the developers of these languages, uncovering vulnerabilities in this software is increasingly challenging. These bounties are our way of saying "Thanks" to the security researchers who take up this challenge.
Only critical vulnerabilities that demonstrate complete compromise of the system's integrity or confidentiality are eligible for a bounty - typically Arbitrary Code Execution or equivalent impact. While we encourage you to submit all potential issues, lower severity issues are not in scope at this time.
Impact | Amount
High Demonstrate that remote exploitation of this bug can be easily, actively, and reliably achieved. | $1,500+
Medium Demonstrate that remote exploitation of this bug is very likely (e.g. good control a register). | $1,000
Minimum Demonstrate the presence of a security bug with probable remote exploitation potential. | $500
The project maintainers have final decision on which issues constitute security vulnerabilities. The Panel will respect their decision, and we ask that you do as well.
It's important to keep in mind that not all submissions will qualify for a bounty, and that the decision to award a bounty is entirely at the discretion of the Panel.
