Oculus added to Facebook's bug bounty program

Facebook pays people bounties to report bugs with the site -- and has now added Oculus, which it acquired in March -- to the program.
Newsbrief: Facebook has a program which encourages people outside the company to report security problems with the site -- by paying them a bounty. The company paid out $1.5 million in bounties in 2013 alone. Now, Oculus has been added to the bounty program, The Verge reports. Right now, Facebook -- which acquired Oculus in March -- is asking people to report vulnerabilities in the Oculus website and developer messaging system. But that could expand, says Facebook's Neal Poole: "Potentially in the future, if people were to go explore and find issues in the SDK or the hardware, that is definitely of interest to us." Oculus recently launched its new DK2 headset with developers; for more on that, read this interview with its chief software architect, Michael Antonov.
