Facebook to Pay Hackers for Bug Reports

Facebook is looking for a few good hackers to help find and fix problems with the website. The stipulation will be that Facebook gets the reports first and have time to act upon those reports. A new website was launched on Friday where ‘researchers’, a nice name for hackers, can sign up for the program. Facebook is offering monetary rewards for bug reports.

Company executives say that keeping good relationships with the hacker community is very important. Facebook has sponsored high-profile parties at the Defcon hacking conference for the past two years.
