Adult video site Pornhub is offering as much as $25,000 (Rs. 16.65 lakhs) to hack its website and find flaws. The company has announced its “bug bounty program” which invites people to hack its website and discover bugs. The public launch of Pornhub’s Bug Bounty Program follows a private, invite-only beta programme that the adult entertainment site ran last year, which compensated participants for helping to identify and fix about two dozen bugs.

Bounty hunters don’t wear a cowboy hat.

The bounties, which range from $50 to $25,000, are dependent upon the vulnerability reported and will be granted entirely at the discretion of Pornhub. With this, Pornhub joins a number of technology giants that have recently implemented Bug Bounty programs, including DropBox, Google, Yahoo!, Twitter, Adobe and Twitter. “Like other major tech players have been doing as of late, we’re tapping some of the most talented security researchers as a proactive and precautionary measure – in addition to our dedicated developer and security teams — to ensure not only the security of our site but that of our users, which is paramount to us,” said Corey Price, vice president, Pornhub .

“The brand new program provides some of our developer-savvy fans a chance to earn some extra cash – upwards to $25K – and the opportunity to be included in helping to protect and enhance the site for our 60 million daily visitors.”
