Facebook said that they will now pay a $500 bounty for reports of vulnerabilities in the social networking service.

Now the recent report claims that Facebook has, over the course of three weeks, paid out more than $40,000 for reports of vulnerabilities in the social networking service. According to the official blog note one person has already received more than $7,000 for six different issues flagged.  It has been a joy to engage in dialogue about issues and hear from the diverse perspectives these people bring.

The following bugs aren't eligible for a bounty (and we don't recommend testing for these):
  • Security bugs in third-party applications (e.g., http://apps.facebook.com/[app_name])
  • Security bugs in third-party websites that integrate with Facebook
  • Security bugs in Facebook's corporate infrastructure
