Bug bounty programs are designed to identify and fix vulnerabilities. Ours has been around for 7 years and it encourages security researchers to identify and submit vulnerability reports regarding virtually everything that bears the Bitdefender brand, including but not limited to the website, products and services.

Being pro-active rather than re-active to emerging security issues is a fundamental belief at Bitdefender. The program covers any exploitable vulnerability that can compromise the integrity of our user data, crash applications (leading to compromise of data) or disclose sensitive information (for example remote code execution, SQL injection, Cross-Site Scripting, Cross-Site Request Forgery, information disclosure of sensitive data, authentication theft or bypass, clickjacking).

Since the program was launched, our researchers have received very valuable information from highly skilled participants that have earned their place in our hall of fame here. -

The Bitdefender Bug Bounty program is provided in partnership with bugcrowd. -

Are you a specialist in vulnerability testing? Can you get inside the mind of a cybercriminal? Have you got what it takes to make it in the Hall of Fame?

Choose your weapons for penetration testing, vulnerability assessments and exploits and become our next bounty hunter.

    $100 - $15,000 per vulnerability 😮

    it's time for me to start studying software engineering, information systems, computer engineering, cybersecurity etc. 😁

  • Just some food for your thoughts:

    Instead of trying to find very fancy vulnerabilities wouldn't be better to fix your bugs in the interface which are many varying from not displaying notifications until not appearing in the popup menu of various file managers? All these bugs make your customers not happy, namely exactly those people who payed your salary. I am telling that I switched from Kaspersky only because of the war in Ukraine and my impressions are:

    1) Bitdefender is a good antivirus in terms of identifying and protecting the system but

    2) Bitdefender is crappy in terms of interface: bugs and very unfriendly

    3) The messages given when a virus is found are completely useless, you can even think to replace them with one standard message: "Attention, virus found, don't ask which virus, it doesn't matter, we have no clue!"

    4) Bitdefender cannot be used with other file managers than windows explorer. Seriously? Do you think that everyone is using windows explorer?

    Overall, if the situation from Europe and the war wouldn't have started, I had been deleting Bitdefender and re-installed Kaspersky again in the second when I had discovered the first bugs in interface. If you plan to keep your customers who switch by various reasons (i.e. your LUCK!) to your software, you would listen to my words: be careful the luck can change the very next second. At least I cannot say I am happy and browsing the forum I saw many like me.
