“Yandex” has increased the reward for bughunters for the vulnerabilities found in the company’s smart devices

“Yandex” announced the expansion of the “Bug Hunting” program for smart devices. “Duo Max Station”, “Midi” and “TV Stations” were added to the program. Also, the maximum reward for found vulnerabilities has increased from 600,000 to 1 million. This will help attract more “white hackers” to test devices for strength, the Yandex press service told the information service.

The program is divided according to priorities. The first priority is given to devices of the new generation: “Duo Max Station”, “Midi Station”, “Max Station”, “TV Station”, “TV Station Pro”, “Mini Station with screen”.

The second priority was given to devices of previous generations, but updated and supported by “Yandex”: “Station”, “Station 2”, “Station Mini” without a screen, “Station Lite”, “Yandex.TV module”.

Various devices, including smart home devices and co-branded TVs, are excluded from the vulnerability scanning program. You can learn more about the conditions of the program on the website.
