Rockstar are paying hackers a minimum of $150 for finding flaws in their systems

Grand Theft Auto

GTA V developers Rockstar Games are using hackers to find faults in their systems, paying out a minimum of $150 to anyone who can fill them in on a vulnerability.

Depending on the severity of the issue, Rockstar may pay out more than the $150 base rate. In fact, at the time of writing, average payouts are $500. Over $90,000 has been paid out in total. 

Here’s a list of the domains Rockstar are paying out for:

  • www.rockstargames.com
  • socialclub.rockstargames.com
  • lifeinvader.com
  • rockstarnorth.com
  • prod.ros.rockstargames.com
  • prod.conductor.ros.rockstargames.com
  • prod.telemetry.ros.rockstargames.com
  • prod.cloud.rockstargames.com
  • prod.hosted.cloud.rockstargames.com
  • media.rockstargames.com
  • patches.rockstargames.com

There are some exclusions, however. DDoS attacks don’t count, because they’re generally just a bunch of plebs being plebs. You also have to not disclose the vulnerability to others before telling Rockstar. 

The full details are over at HackerOne

Aw shoot, I thought they were going to include GTA V multiplayer in which case I was going to say "The way the whole thing works."
