Private Internet Access Launches Bug Bounty on BugCrowd
November 2022 by Marc Jacob
Virtual private network (VPN) provider Private Internet Access (PIA) has announced the availability of a public bug bounty program on BugCrowd, offering up to $1,250 per bug, depending on the bug submission.
Providing a highly secure VPN service to users is critical in today’s online world. PIA’s bug bounty program reflects this, working with the valuable input of individuals acting in good faith to maintain a high standard of security and privacy for users, empowering them to go about their life online without fear or concern.
PIA’s bug bounty program will cover all aspects of the company’s infrastructure and applications, including its server architecture, platform and mobile applications, and website presence. The program uses the BugCrowd Vulnerability Rating Taxonomy to rank the different criticality levels of bugs uncovered. In line with this, PIA will offer different levels of bounty based on different levels of technical severity.
PIA’s new public bug bounty program will sit alongside the company’s existing vulnerability disclosure program. Across its programs, PIA will accept vulnerability disclosures from all sources, including independent security researchers, industry partners, vendors, customers, and consultants.
