Vulnerable exported broadcast receiver [5 upvotes] - no bounty for this report to bitwarden by @b3nac.
Self-XSS in password reset functionality [6 upvotes] - $500 bounty for this report to Shopify by @iron_fist. Lesson: Only you can stop self-XSS! No, but seriously: good programs with high min bounties are cherry to learn and hack on!
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before… “The configuration file of an internal IRC bot (which included credentials to internal services and some external services used by [redacted] developers) was inadvertently included by an employee in a personal public GitHub repository.

"It’s one thing for a company to come forward and work with their general counsel to do a bug bounty. It’s a completely different thing entirely for the organization that really initiated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and that early hostility toward security researchers to openly start engaging and working with them. The weight that the DoD brings when they pair with the DoJ to say 'hackers can do good,' that just doesn’t exist anywhere else."
