PCPro: For the first time ever, Google has paid its top bounty to a security researcher who found a bug in its Chrome browser. "Were delighted to offer our first 'elite' $3133.70 Chromium Security Reward to Sergey Glazunov," said Google's Jason Kersey. "Critical bugs are harder to come by in Chrome, but Sergey has done it."
Glazunov also received a separate $1,337 payout and three others for $1,000 each.
Google has issued a security update which patches a total of 16 bugs, including those found by Glazunov.
