Google will work with external software makers  and every bug found by its researchers will be documented in an “external database.” Zero-day bugs which gives spies the power to completely control target users’ computers are hunted. Even some NSA’s spying practices were based on. As announced via an official blog post, only software vendors will initially be notified about the found bugs. A patch to correct the issue will need to be developed and finally this will become public. Google planned to hiring the best and brightest security researchers they can find in the world including elite hackers. One of them is George Hotz who dismantled the defenses of Google’s Chrome operating system earlier this year. The company paid him a $150,000 reward for helping fix the flaws he’d uncovered. Later, he was invited to join , like many others, the „Project zero“ team.
