Bug Hunt

ThinkstockPhotos-494288758 (1).jpg

Are you looking for a side hustle to do something interesting and make a few dollars? Consider being an ethical hacker working for bug bounties. Many tech companies have formal programs that reward people for reporting bugs in their systems, such as security problems. 

Bug bounty programs have proven valuable to businesses that create software or that have an online presence. Businesses have offered these programs for decades.

Some people make a few dollars when they stumble on a problem. Many actively and methodically search for problems, such as a 19 year old from Argentina who has made millions of dollars from bug bounties. 

Don’t know where to start? Hackerone is an example of a resource for both businesses wanting to implement bug bounty programs, and for individuals wanting to try it.
