Re: Bug bounty successes?
True. It's nice to see open source software is taking security seriously. So commercial software can't level criticism at OSS that it's fundamentally less secure.

Well, more secure than it used to be. This is two years ago, remember.

Bug bounty successes?
> "FOSSA tried a proof-of-concept bug bounty effort in 2017 using VLC Media Player as the test subject, with 60,000 ($68,000) in funding. This gave the EU some practical experience in running this kind of program." ... So is VLC media player now more secure? I always wonder how apps can force users to keep up with security updates. Usually, end users download an app and use it and never check to see if the app contains vulnerabilities as long as the app itself continues to function as expected.
