Google has increased the rewards from $200,000 to a maximum of $1.5m for its Android Security Rewards program. This reward will be available to security researchers and white-hat hackers who are able to hack the Titan M security chip on the Pixel devices.
On a recent blog post, they wrote that they have increased the payouts and that they have already paid out more than $4M for more than 1,800 reports.
“We are introducing a top prize of $1 million for a full chain remote code execution exploit with persistence which compromises the Titan M secure element on Pixel devices. Additionally, we will be launching a specific program offering a 50% bonus for exploits found on specific developer preview versions of Android, meaning our top prize is now $1.5 million.”Explained Jessica Lin
