Apple has announced a new Security Bounty Program that will pay hackers up to $200,000 for discovering vulnerabilities in its software and hardware.

Jay Freeman (Saurik) tweets:

At #BlackHat2016, Apple just announced a new Security Bounty program and has promised to prioritize pushing updates.

Initial Categories:
● Secure boot firmware components - $200,000 Max Payment
● Extraction of confidential material protected by the Secure Enclave Processor - $100,000 Max Payment
● Execution of arbitrary code with kernel privileges - $50,000 Max Payment
● Unauthorized access to iCloud account data on Apple servers - $50,000 Max Payment
● Access from a sandboxed process to user data outside of that sandbox - $25,000 Max Payment

The program is set to launch in September and initially will be invite only. If a non-member contacts Apple with a significant bug they'll be invited into the program.
