Facebook doubles bounties on ad code bugs until the end of 2014

The holidays are coming up and that means shopping for presents. If you’re a whitehat hacker looking to earn some cash, Facebook might be able to help you out.

Facebook announced today that it will double the cash given to hackers that find bugs in the social network’s ad code. To help steer the whitehats to what they should be looking for, Facebook posted the following:

At this stage of our bug bounty program, it’s uncommon for us to see many of the common web security bugs like XSS. What we see more often are things like missing or incorrect permissions checks, insufficient rate-limiting that can lead to scraping, edge-case CSRF issues , and problems with SWFs.

To take part in checking Facebook’s code, you’ll need to set up a whitehat test account. Once that is set up head over to A Bounty Hunter’s Guide to Facebook and start hacking for cash.
