Bounty hunters, those keyboard cowboys, bent on circumventing protections and leveraging mistakes in software. All for coin, swag, and glory. But bug bounty programs are the latest attempt to find and stamp out code-level weaknesses. We’ve tried education. We’ve tried coding guidelines. We’ve tried top tens and paid penetration testers. And now we turn to the lone hunter, hoping to find and close just one more vulnerability. This session will highlight some achievements in recent times by these bounty hunters. And stepping back, thinking about defensibility, a framework and approach for building stronger software will be shared. After all, anyone writing code today lives with a price on their head.
