Oculus added to Facebook's bug bounty program
: Facebook has a program
which encourages people outside the company to report security problems with the site -- by paying them a bounty. The company paid out $1.5 million
in bounties in 2013 alone.
Now, Oculus has been added to the bounty program, The Verge reports
Right now, Facebook -- which acquired Oculus in March
-- is asking people to report vulnerabilities in the Oculus website and developer messaging system. But that could expand, says Facebook's Neal Poole: "Potentially in the future, if people were to go explore and find issues in the SDK or the hardware, that is definitely of interest to us."
Oculus recently launched its new DK2 headset with developers; for more on that, read this interview
with its chief software architect, Michael Antonov.
