Trailrunner7 writes "The team behind the Metasploit Project is launching its own version of a bug bounty program: cash payouts for working exploits. The group is hoping to get exploit code for as many of its top 30 vulnerabilities as possible before the program expires later this summer. The amount of money paid for a working exploit module for Metasploit depends on the value of the vulnerability. A module for one of the vulnerabilities in the top five list — which includes a flaw in Google Chrome and another in the Windows DNS client — is worth $500. Modules for vulnerabilities in the separate top 25 list are worth $100 each under the rules."
