Bugcrowd is excited to announce our June 2016 Hall of Fame winners! Apologies for the delay in posting this, but I'm sure you've all seen that we're pretty busy planning big things for Black Hat + DEFCON this August.

Once again, mongo has topped the June leaderboard with his amazing work across our platform. Following up, we're happy to have mert in second place, and Web_Plus rounding out the top three. To thank our top performers for their hard work, Bugcrowd is pleased to announce that all three researchers will receive bonuses for their performance.

  1. mongo - 990 points - $2,500 bonus 
  2. mert - 524 bonus - $1,500 bonus
  3. Web_Plus - 498 points - $1,000 bonus

Think you have what it takes to come out on top?

High severity bugs that result in critical security impact like remote code execution or elevation of privilege earn the most kudos points – check out our blog for a points and priority break down and read more discussion about why an IDOR can be anywhere from a P1 to a P3 on the Bugcrowd Forum. Submitting high severity bugs not only gets you bigger rewards, it can also help you get invited to private bounty programs faster – check out A Look At Private Program Invites to learn more about how to get chosen for private programs.

Thanks again to all of the Bugcrowd researchers for all of their hard work in June. We look forward to the July Hall of Fame results!
