    Attention ethical hackers: Google has just announced that it decided to increase the bounties offered for Google Chrome browser security vulnerabilities, with the maximum payment now reaching $30,000!

    The Google Chrome Vulnerability Rewards Program was released in 2010, and the search giant says it received no less than 8,500 reports since then.

    Furthermore, the bounties that it offered as part of the program total more than $5 million.

    Now Google is willing to pay even more for Chrome security vulnerabilities, so the maximum baseline reward amount is increased from $5,000 to $15,000. Furthermore, the top bounty is now $30,000, up from $15,000.
