Security researchers offered bounty portal

Antony Savvas

Security researchers are being offered a sales portal to maximise the bounties they receive for discovering software vulnerabilities.

WSLabi, a Swiss independent security research lab, has launched the international security research exchange.

The exchange is designed to create an environment where researchers, security suppliers and software companies can interact in an open market. It is designed to enable researchers “to obtain the correct value for their findings”, said WSLabi.

Herman Zampariolo, CEO at WSLabi, said, “We decided to set up this portal for selling security research because although there are many researchers out there who discover vulnerabilities, very few of them are able or willing to report them to the right people, due to the fear of being exploited.”
