Behind Apple, in second place is Huawei’s bug bounty program, which offers between $200 and $223,000 to users who find bugs in their devices. It is followed by Samsung, which pays between 200 and 200,000 dollars for these ‘exploits’. The amounts depend mainly on the severity level of the error and its corresponding exposure to attacks by cybercriminals.
