Threatpost: With bug bounties being all the rage, the platforms that support them are emerging as important pieces of the security research, disclosure and reward ecosystem. One of those platforms, HackerOne, has scored a major coup in hiring Katie Moussouris, the driving force behind Microsoft’s bounty program, to oversee its policy and disclosure philosophy and work with customers on the intricacies of vulnerability disclosure.
HackerOne is perhaps best known as the platform that supports the Internet Bug Bounty sponsored by Microsoft and Facebook. That reward program pays for vulnerabilities discovered in core Internet technologies such as the DNS system and SSL, as well as Linux and the major browsers from Google, Microsoft and Mozilla. But HackerOne also supports bug bounty programs for a wide variety of other companies and even individual developers.
