Remote Code Execution at http://tw.corp.ubnt.com [20 upvotes] - $5,000 bounty for this report to Ubiquiti Networks by @hassham.
Subdomain Takeover [4 upvotes] - no bounty for this report to TTS Bug Bounty by @picklepwns. The bug was not in scope for the 18F Vulnerability Disclosure Policy and (rightly so) not eligible for a bounty, however the team was quick, responsive, courteous and professional throughout and I highly recommend this program.
