Report: India Tops Facebook's Bugs List for Second Consecutive Year

“India contributed the largest number of valid bugs again this year at 196, with an average reward of $1,343”, according to Social networking giant Facebook.

In a report by the social network post by Collin Greene, security engineer at Facebook, share of people in developing countries with Internet access stands at only 32 percent

India, which has over 112 million Facebook users, cornered an average reward of $1,343 (about Rs. 84,000) in the US-based firm’s Bug Bounty programme.

Egypt and the US followed at the second and third spots by volume, with 81 bugs and 61 bugs, respectively, and an average reward size of $1,220 and $2,470, it added.

The UK, which took the fourth spot in reporting bugs, earned the highest amount per report in 2014, receiving an average of $2,768 for 28 bugs.

The Philippines was at fifth, earning a total of $29,500 for 27 bugs, it said.

“We’ve paid out more than $3 million since we got started in 2011, and in 2014 we paid $1.3 million to 321 researchers across the globe. The average reward in 2014 was $1,788,” Facebook Security Engineer Collin Greene said in the post.
