Open source projects eligible for the HackerOne reward program include Ruby, Ruby on Rails, RubyGems, Curl, Electron, Django, Nginx, and OpenSSL. For vulnerabilities found in these projects, HackerOne will pay from $ 300 to $ 5000, depending on the severity of the bug. Payment will be made as follows. Four-fifths of the awards will immediately go to the researcher who discovers the problem. The fifth part of the award will be given to the developer who is engaged in the open source project in the direction that affects the new vulnerability. He will receive payment from HackerOne after he releases a patch against the vulnerability.

“Open source software is used in almost all modern digital infrastructure. Currently, an average, solid, not very rich application uses 528 different open source components. Critical vulnerabilities discovered in 2020 existed by the time of discovery for an average of about two years , and the application development companies did not have access and the ability to eliminate the identified deficiencies of the components used, “the company said in a press release.

Along with HackerOne, participating partners are organizations that rely on open source for software supply chains and other critical digital infrastructure – Elastic, Facebook, Figma, GitHub, Shopify, and TikTok.
