Facebook hacker denied $500 reward, receives $10,000
Khalil Shreateh, who we wrote about earlier this week, was denied a $500 reward for a security flaw he reported via the facebook whitehat page. The whitehat page promises $500 for reporting any serious flaw in facebook security.
Khalil reported the bug multiple times but was ignored and told it “wasn’t a bug” – so he took matters into his own hands and posted on Mark Zuckerberg’s personal Facebook page.
Marc Maiffret, the Chief Technology Officer at BeyondTrust (a leading security and compliance management company) took it into his own hands to help Khalil get what he deserves. He started a campaign on GoFundMe which has already racked up more than $10,000 in donations.
