EU reward for software bugs found
Now you can get rewards for finding bugs in open source software

You ask yourself “whatsapp will work without a SIM card” or any other Internet resource, our answer is YES, for this you can use online numbers of media cards on our service.

The European Union will help cover the costs of bug programs for 14 open source projects in accordance with an announcement made by EU Member of Parliament Julia Reda.

Projects that will receive funding for their programs for errors: 7-zip, Apache Kafka, Apache Tomcat, Digital Signature Services (DSS), Drupal, Filezilla, FLUX TL, GNU C library (glibc), KeePass, midPoint, Notepad ++, PuTTY, the Symfony PHP framework, VLC Media Player and WSO2.

Bug control programs are funded as part of the third edition of the Free and Open Source Software Audit (FOSSA) project.

FOSSA was first approved by the EU authorities back in 2015, when security researchers discovered serious vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL library a year earlier.

FOSSA Third Edition
In a statement, Julia Reda emphasized the importance of free, open source software, saying:

“This problem has made many people realize how important free and open source software is for the integrity and reliability of the Internet and other infrastructure. Like many other organizations, institutions such as the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission rely on free software to work. ”

The first edition of FOSSA was conducted from 2015 to 2016 with a budget of 1 million Euros, and a public study was conducted during which it was decided that the Apache HTTP web server and KeePass password manager would receive a sponsored security audit.

FOSSA 2 had a budget of € 2 million, but its error reward program was limited to € 60,000 for the VLC Media Player application.

Beginning in January, security researchers and companies can hunt for vulnerabilities in the 14 open source projects selected for FOSSA 3 and report them for a cash reward.
