Apple has set a record reward for information on vulnerabilities in the iPhone – the payout can reach up to a million dollars. Previously, the program operated only for invited experts in the field of information security, but now third-party experts can also take part in it.
The largest “prize” will be given to those who can implement the remote access algorithm to the core of the smartphone system without first interacting with the victim’s device, Reuters reports . Prior to this, the maximum payout for serious vulnerability could be up to $ 200 thousand. This amount guaranteed, among other things, that those who found it would not sell information about the exploit to the side.
Earlier it was also reported that Apple will give out modified smartphones to hackers, but this time already invited and authorized.
