Google Patches Serious Flaws In Chrome 49

Bug bounty programs not only make the world a safer place, they can also make you richer. I know you're supposed to say you are doing this research for the "greater good" and all that, but a $25,000 check for finding one exploit ain't too bad either.

Last month, an anonymous researcher earned over $25,000 for reporting same-origin bypass and Chrome sandbox escape bugs, and Google is prepared to give out even higher amounts for vulnerabilities found in its products. The company announced recently that it’s prepared to give $100,000 to anyone who can achieve a persistent compromise of a Chromebox or Chromebook in guest mode via a web page.
