Google sees a significant drop-off in reported security issues and hopes to increase efforts by introducing more bonuses.
Earlier this year Google increased its bug bounty
drastically, offering an award of up to $20,000 in comparison to its previous top reward of $3,133.70.
Now, the company is giving even more incentives to crafty bug catchers out there.
On Tuesday, Chrome software engineer Chris Evans (not to be confused with Captain America) stated in the Chromium Blog
, "Recently, we've seen a significant drop-off in externally reported Chromium security issues. This signals to us that bugs are becoming harder to find."
