To ensure success in finding priority vulnerabilities, security researchers often leverage the learnings of others through write-ups, blogs, podcasts and more. At the same time, researchers are beginning to work more collaboratively thanks to live communication tools and bug bounty incentives. However, researchers were limited in claiming credit for the finding and applicable rewards between multiple accounts. With Bugcrowd’s new researcher collaboration feature, researchers can now easily add collaborators to a submission, allowing each collaborator to participate and split the relevant rewards.
This feature is now available across public programs and bug bashes. If you’re interested in enabling collaboration with your private program, please let your account manager know.
