This program applies to errors already detected in software running smartphones listed. More specifically, errors found in ASP code, OEM libraries and drivers, Dani, secure element code, trust zone OS, and its modules. In addition, people who find errors in the chipsets firmware can be rewarded if these errors can affect Android security.

As far as money is concerned, it depends on which particular elements of the security system has been hacked. Most – up to 1 million – rely on the hacking of the Pixel Titan M chip. Secure factors, reliable process environment and damage to the kernel can take researchers up to 250,000.

By finding a weak spot in the privileged process, you can get up to $ 100,000. If developers have been exposed to the possibility of hacking in some early versions of Android, a premium of up to 50% of the principal is expected.
