Bug bounties are making some hackers rich — and the companies they're hacking are more than happy to pay them. More than 600,000 white hat hackers are members of the bug bounty site HackerOne, a community connecting those hackers with companies paying them to find security holes in their vital digital systems.
And it's working. Last year, bounties of over $40 million were paid out, including some awards of over $1 million.
