Google has updated its bug bounty program and doubled a reward for a particular type of Chromebook exploit. According to the new terms of Google’s bug bounty program, it has doubled the reward on offer to anyone who can compromise the security of a Chromebook in guest mode from US $50,000 to US$100,000.

According to Google’s Nathan Parker and Tim Willis: “That said, great research deserves great awards, so we’re putting up a standing six-figure sum, available all year round with no quotas and no maximum reward pool,” said the pair in a blog post on Monday US time.

Google has also added a Download Protection Bypass bounty. In short, the company is offering rewards for methods that bypass Chrome’s Safe Browsing download protection features. The qualifying reward rules are as follows:

  • Safe Browsing must be enabled on Chrome and have an up-to-date database (this may take up to a few hours after a new Chrome install).
  • Safe Browsing servers must be reachable on the network.
    Binary must land in a location a user is likely to execute it (e.g. Downloads folder).
    The user can’t be asked to change the file extension or recover it from the blocked download list.
  • Any gestures required must be likely and reasonable for most users. As a guide, execution with more than three reasonable user gestures (eg: click to download, open .zip, launch .exe) is unlikely to qualify, but it’ll be judged on a case-by-case basis. The user can’t be expected to bypass warnings.
  • The download should not send a Download Protection Ping back to Safe Browsing. Download Protection Pings can be measured by checking increments to counters at chrome://histograms/SBClientDownload.CheckDownloadStats. If a counter increments, a check was successfully sent (with exception to counter #7, which counts checks that were not sent).
  • The binary’s hosting domain and any signature cannot be on a whitelist. You can measure this by checking chrome://histograms/SBClientDownload.SignedOrWhitelistedDownload does not increment.

Google typically offers between US$500 and US$15,000 for reported bugs depending on the quality of reporting. Earlier in January, Google said that it paid well over $2 million (€1.8 million) as bug bounty rewards for security experts around the globe. Ever since the program started in 2010, Google said it paid researchers more than $6 million (€5.4 million).
