Good news for Hackers and Bug hunters!
You can now WIN 1 Million Dollars for finding zero-day hacks for iPhones and iPads.
Yes, $1,000,000.00 Reward
This Huge Bug Bounty is offered by the new Security firm Zerodium, a startup of the infamous French-based Security firm "VUPEN", who is well known for buying and selling zero-day vulnerabilities.
Zerodium, which describes itself as "the premium zero-day acquisition platform," announced a total of $3 Million ($3,000,000) bounty bounty rewards for iOS exploits and jailbreaks.
$3 Million Reward for Zero-day exploits and Jailbreaks
The Zero-day Acquisition Firm challenges hackers, researchers, and bug hunters to discover zero-day flaws and exploits in Apple's latest mobile operating system iOS 9 that must allow an attacker to remotely compromise a non-jailbroken iOS device through:
- A web page,
- In-app browsing action, or
- text message or MMS (Multi-Media Messages)
"The whole exploitation [or] jailbreak process should be achievable remotely, silently, reliably, and without requiring any user interaction except visiting a webpage or reading an SMS [or] MMS," Zerodium says in a blog post.
However, the vulnerabilities in Airdrop, Bluetooth, NFC, or baseband would not qualify.

- iPhone 6S
- iPhone 6S Plus
- iPad Air 2 and others
The bug bounty program is valid and open until October 31st, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. EDT, and or until the firm ends up paying the total promised payout of $3 Million to researchers and developers.
