The security is a serious concern for every company. When an enterprise deals with user credentials, security is all they care about. That’s why 1Password raised their top bug bounty all the way up to $100000.
Web developers always created news about cracking the security of tech titans. It hasn’t been so long since an Indian security enthusiast, Hemanth Joseph cracked iPad’s lock screen via local overflow buffer vulnerability and notified Apple about the same.
Having been able to break the safety wall and report the bug, these developers increase the security of the website or device they target. For the same reason, companies provide rewards to such findings.
The latest news came out about 1Password upping their top bounty to $100000.
1Password Offers $100000 to Crack their Vault
As you might already know, 1Password is a password manager platform, where you can keep all your credentials inside three layers of security (master password, security key, and encrypted data). Apparently, getting access to someone’s 1Password account brings all usernames and passwords he/she uses.
Hence, 1Password thought to strengthen their security wall by inviting skilled hackers to crack their vault. The current bounty program is being run via a dedicated website called Bugcrowd.
Agilebit, the company behind 1Password, had joined Bugcrowd in 2015. Ever since it happened, they successfully ran many bounty programs.
The Cloud Bleed incident has become viral a few weeks ago, causing the leakage of data from many websites. And, that was the time CloudFlare gets mocked at, due to their terrible bounty program with the maximum reward, being a T-Shirt. All these increase the significance of 1Password’s bounty program.
As an announced bounty contest, you have to follow some official guidelines. If your aim is to bag those hundred thousand bucks, you have to grab the access to a ‘bad poetry’ stored inside the vault of an account. Yeah, they have literally kept a terribly written haiku encrypted inside a TXT file somewhere on the protected area.
With the hefty amount of $100000 for a bug, Agilebit is offering the biggest bounty in the tech industry (except the titans Apple, Microsoft, and Google). Earlier, the maximum they used to offer was $20000.
What if you can’t get access to their vault? Don’t worry! The company has four other levels too, ranging from $100 to $5000.
