Yahoo T-shirt rewards
Yahoo said in October that it will stop giving T-shirts as a reward for finding security vulnerabilities after a public shaming it's calling "t-shirt gate." The company received a drubbing from the Swiss security company High-Tech Bridge after it found four serious vulnerabilities in Yahoo's network, all of which have now been fixed. Starting Oct. 31, Yahoo will pay rewards ranging from $150 to $15,000 for vulnerabilities provided those flaws are new, unique or high risk. It plans to retroactively reward researchers who notified the company of issues going back to July 1 (Jeremy Kirk, IDG News Service).
