A notorious startup is offering up to $1 million in rewards to security researchers who can find bugs and develop techniques to exploit the anonymous web surfing tool the Tor Browser.
„We need many exploits as we have many customers with many ongoing operations against illegal activities undertaken on Tor,“ Chaouki Bekrar, the CEO and founder of Zerodium, told Motherboard in an online chat. „We have a higher demand for Tor exploits from our government customers as they are facing higher illegal activities on Tor and they must take action.“
