Vice: iPhone Bugs Are Too Valuable to Report to Apple


Interesting article on the cost of bugs to an organization. I've seen companies offer up to 1 million loyalty points for reporting a major defect. Someone who finds a bug in iOS or MacOS can get from $25,000 to $200,000 for reporting the bugs but aren't doing so since they think they can profit from it in other ways... hopefully not the black market but given the prevalence of high profile security breaches that's likely a primary avenue.
