United Airlines announced rewards for security bugs found in its websites, apps, and online portals


United’s announcement doesn’t invite researchers to submit the most crucial vulnerabilities researchers could find—those discovered in onboard computer networks, such as the Wi-Fi and entertainment systems. More, the program specifically excludes “bugs on onboard Wi-Fi, entertainment systems or avionics” and United notes that “[a]ny testing on aircraft or aircraft systems such as inflight entertainment or inflight Wi-Fi” could result in a criminal investigation. All submissions in the contest after knowing something which should interest United Airlines must be sent to bugbounty@united.com including “Bug Bounty Submission” in the subject line. United Airlines is the same company which recently removed from flight a cyber expert, after he made public the existence of vulnerable aspects about flight’s security.
