Tor Project To Launch Bug Bounty Program
Tor would soon be launching a bounty program which would reward any person who finds a vulnerability in one of the most popular anonymity programs these days.
“We are grateful to the people who have looked over our code over the years, but the only way to continue to improve is to get more people involved,” Nick Mathewson, co-founder, researcher, and chief architect of the Tor Project
The idea behind this program is to remove all the vulnerabilities which are most of the time found by the hackers and are sold to the government for launching attacks. So, what the program will do is encourage researchers and hackers to find vulnerabilities in return for the reward.
This sort of strategy has been widely employed by nearly all the big companies from around the globe like United Airlines

Rewards for bounties range from few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Facebook alonespent $1.3 million
“We have a sponsor, OTF [Open Technology Fund], who is paying HackerOne, a company that specializes in this, to help us do it,” Roger Dingledine, co-founder and research director of the Tor Project, told
