Apple reportedly calls in hackers for meeting on bug bounty program

Apple is reportedly briefing a select group of hackers on its plans to launch a bug bounty program for those discovering iOS and Mac vulnerabilities, Forbes reports. One source said the group attending the meeting “is not too big at all,” limited to an invite-only list focused more on quality than quantity of hacking talent. Apple is said to be rewarding hackers with up to $200,000 for providing the company with information about security flaws in its devices. Apple first announced the program during August’s Black Hat security conference, joining companies like Google and Microsoft who have long offered similar programs for hackers.
