Google has launched a new bug bounty program hoping to stamp out problems in the Android code on the Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet. Eligible bugs include those in AOSP code, OEM code (libraries and drivers), the kernel, and the TrustZone OS and modules. Android will pay those who discover and disclose bugs anywhere from $500 to $8,000, depending on the severity of the bug and the completeness of the disclosure. For example, those who simply report a moderate bug will only receive $500. Those who discover a severe bug and offer Google CTS tests and patches may be eligible for the $8,000 reward. Google's goal is to make Android more secure for everyone.
