Hackers can receive up to $30,000 if they help DJI find flaws in the software for its drones. The Chinese company has unveiled a bug bounty program that’s intended to improve the overall security of its products. With its DJI Threat Identification Reward, hackers can obtain payouts of $100 to $30,000.
The amount you receive depends on how significant the reported threat is.
Security researchers, academic scholars and independent experts often provide a valuable service by analyzing the code in DJI’s apps and other software products and bringing concerns to public attention. DJI wants to learn from their experiences as we constantly strive to improve our products, and we are willing to pay rewards for the discoveries they make.– Walter Stockwell, DJI
Some of DJI’s security has already been bypassed in recent months, with hackers successfully rooting its products to get around built-in speed, altitude, and location restrictions.
