|Yahoo Reviews Its Bug Report Policy: T-Shirts Weren't Enough!|
| 5:59 pm on Oct 3, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Finding and reporting a serious bug at Yahoo has now gotten a whole lot more worthwhile.
Amongst the new policy items, the reward is now more substantial ...
|Reward: Perhaps the most important part -- the t-shirts are history, and will be replaced with rewards between $150 - $15,000 for vulnerabilities classified as "new, unique and/or high risk." |
|The new policy will be released by the end of October 2013. In the meantime, to appease disgruntled t-shirt holders, the firm will implement the new policy retroactively back to July 1, 2013 |

Dang it! The only bugs I've found recently are in my kitchen! (All squashed, of course!)
I never did get their thought process behind the t-shirts... though I might have left the "r" out in conversation with other brothers of the web. :)
Doing things on the cheap, or thinking folks will be happy with a t-shirt for discovering and reporting (instead of taking advantage of) serious security, has been an amazement.
