In limited stores you can now pay with paypal and Paypal also launched itself in the near field communication (NFC) mobile payments or money transfers.
Thus who can blame them for wanting a safer and secure platform? Like other companies: Google, Mozilla, Microsoft and others, Paypal also announced that it starts a bug bounty program.
Paypal publicly announced that it can offer as high as $20000 for any big critical bug found by so called “honest” hackers. There is no doubt that security companies and hackers worldwide will try to get their hands on a reward like that.
