Google Chrome has increased the value of its bug bounties, where users who can find vulnerabilities in its programs will get compensations. Google has stated that users who can find bugs in the Chromebook or Chromebox will be compensated with a $150,000 prize, through the Chrome vulnerability Rewards Program. New submissions will be eligible for the prize. This is an increase from the previous value of $100,000 for bugs in either Chromebook or Chromebox.
This indicates that Google sees vulnerabilities in this area to be a priority. The bug bounties program was initially launched in 2010, and since then Google has had 8,500 vulnerability reports and paid out approximately $5 million to researchers.
