Sony today announced the launch of a public PlayStation bug bounty program to pay security researchers and gamers for security vulnerabilities found in PlayStation 4 devices, the PlayStation Network domains.
According to the company’s new PlayStation bug bounty program (aka Vulnerability Disclosure Program) hosted on HackerOne, Sony wants the research community to report any issues found in the PlayStation 4 system, operating system, accessories, and the PlayStation Network.
Sony explains that only “submissions on the current released or beta version of system software” will be accepted but it may also “accept submissions on earlier versions of system software on a case by case basis.”
Those who also find a vulnerability on a Sony asset that is not covered by the PlayStation VRP are advised to report it through Sony’s public bug bounty program.
