Facebook rewards 'white hat' hackers with $1.3m bounty

Facebook has announced that it paid out $1.3 million last year to ‘white hat’ hackers, as part of a bounty initiative that rewards developers for spotting flaws in the social network.
The Next Web reports that Facebook paid 321 researchers worldwide in 2014, offering an average reward of $1,788. The total sum is down slightly from the $1.5 million paid out last year, but the company says the number of reports has risen by 16% to more than 17,000.
