Hacking, AppSec, and Bug Bounty newsletter
2017-08-10 | High school hunters, New era of SSRF, and vDOS operators arrested
Thursday, August 10
Happy Thursday - make it a great day!
A Uruguayan high school student found a $10,000 bug in Google. “I thought to myself, ‘Cool, this is probably a small thing that isn't worth a dime, the website probably had some technical stuff about Google servers and nothing really important’. On that note - hacking the Air Force while still in high school? Yeah, that happened.
ap_find_token() Buffer Overread [5 upvotes] - $1,500 bounty for this report to Apache httpd by @javier_sensepost. “I would like to donate the bug bounty money (if any) to charity and preferably do it on behalf of my company, SensePost”. Well done, Javier.
