Exodus Intelligence Offers Hackers Up to $500,000 for iOS Zero Day Vulnerability

Exodus Intelligence is now offering hackers up to $500,000 for an iOS zero-day vulnerability, far more than Apple is offering through its new Security Bounty Program.

Apple's program will only pay hackers up to $200,000 for discovering vulnerabilities in its software and hardware.

A Zero-Day vulnerability is a flaw that has not been fixed by the application provider allowing an attacker access to protected information. Exodus works with the research community to find these attacks first and make them available to security vendors and enterprises, allowing them to deploy defenses before their adversaries can attack.

In addition to Zero-Day vulnerabilities, Exodus also acquires exploits for patched vulnerabilities (N-Days). More details at the link below...

I don't get why this company would pay so much. Once it's exploited it will be patched by Apple....I guess if the exploit is never made public then it would be more useful for long period of time.

I am sick of the ios 9.3.4 update reminder 20 times a day. The user should have a options to disable this feature. I hope somone files a class action lawsuit about. Windows and all kinds of items allow you to disable the features.

Lawsuit on what grounds? Warning you of a defect in your product and reminding you to fix it? Those bastards!!!!

Yes, it's up to you. Nobody's forcing you. And they easily could force you if they wanted to, they could just make it part of the user agreement. But aren't you making mountains out of molehills? Just let it go, enjoy life.
