Zoom shells out $1.8m in bug bounties for 2021

Zoom has revealed that it paid out roughly $1.8m in bug bounty rewards for the full year of 2021.

According to Security Week, the company launched its bug bounty program on the HackerOne platform back in 2019. Since then, it claims it has handed out more than $2.4m in bounty payouts to date.

Zoom said, “This past year, our Vulnerability Management and Bug Bounty (VMBB) team focused on navigating a competitive recruitment landscape and attracting more ‘rock star’ security researchers to join our program by providing them with an excellent experience.”

Throughout last year, Zoom made a number of updates to its bug bounty program, including making it clearer for hackers what bounty amounts their reports may qualify for, and increasing the top bounties to $50,000.

The company also launched a public Vulnerability Disclosure Program, which allows for all researchers to submit vulnerability reports. The firm also introduced a VIP Bug Bounty program, focused on the licensed versions of Zoom solutions.
