Exploit techniques for some zero-day software vulnerabilities just got even more lucrative for security researchers willing to sell them as cybersecurity intelligence firm Zerodium this week raised its payout for exploits – in some cases, doubling the awards.
Zerodium doubled the bounty it pays for unknown exploits targeting popular operating systems and software programs. It now pays up to $2 million for a flaw that could exploit Apple’s iOS mobile operating system without any victim interaction, for example. Vulnerabilities in messaging applications, such as WhatsApp and iMessage, could earn up to $1 million, the company said.
