We Called, Our Mobile Researchers Answered!

Posted by Chloe Brown on Oct 25, 2016 10:03:00 AM

Throughout June, July and August 2016, we ran a researcher promotion focused on mobile targets and we are thrilled today to finally be able to announce the winners:

Congratulations to Javidr &  konkakarthik for their winning submissions!

The participation we received throughout the program was fantastic: 111 unique researchers reported vulnerabilities in mobile targets on more than 30 different bounty programs. This participation resulted in a 62% increase in mobile submissions over the prior 3-month period, increasing our mobile crowd 10% overall.

We are committed to adding new resources for researchers who let us know they are interested in starting to test against mobile targets. These resources, like this fantastic blog on how to set up an Android device for testing, work to help eliminate the misconceptions and common barriers to entry that are typically associated with mobile testing.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this promotion, and congrats to our two winners. Check out our current promotion here - it’s focused on thick client targets, and runs until December 31st, 2016!

We look forward to hearing from you! Send any feedback or inquiries to support@bugcrowd.com.
