Mozilla: Time to remember the Bug Bounty Program

Mozilla had announed earlier that reporters of valid critical security bugs in any Mozilla software will receive a $500 (US) cash reward and a Mozilla T-shirt.

The recently released Firefox flaw code could be used to exploit Firefox, Mozilla Suite and Netscape browsers. The flaw lies in the way the browsers handle International Domain Names, which are Web addresses that use international characters.

Mozilla is urging users to upgrade to the latest versions of its products but did Mozilla give any reward (Security Bug Bounty Program) to researcher Berend-Jan Wever, who published the code.
