Google yesterday release its report on stating that how much money it has paid out to security researchers for spotting bugs in its Chrome web browser latest stable version. The amazing thing is out of total $11,500 it has paid, $7,000 goes to one single developer, named “miaubiz.” The developer discovered seven separate bugs in total.
“We’d also like to thank Arthur Gerkis, Atte Kettunen of OUSPG and miaubiz for working with us during the development cycle and preventing security regressions from ever reaching the stable channel,” writes Chrome developer Dharani Govindan in the announcement post. “Various additional rewards were issued for this awesomeness.”
Those who are using the stable version of Chrome will receive the update automatically in the next few days while if you want to get the updates now, all what you have to do is navigate to the browser’s “About” box and click the update button manually, it will install the latest updates.
