Pornhub Will Give You $25,000 If You Can Hack Its Website

Never one to keep us bored for long, Pornhub is back with another random affiliation, or ‘request’ it seems. The porn site has just announced the “bug bounty program”, which is offering up to $25,000 to anyone who can breach its security network.

It’s all part of Pornhub’s ongoing effort to keep the website’s community “safe”. According the a blog post on the website, it will offer money to people who can find bugs on the site, and show them how to reproduce them.

“We are essentially asking you tech geeks to pore over the site and show us where we can be doing better,” the site states.


Pornhub aren’t the only ones to offer this ‘hack for money’ reward system, either. The online porn giant follows in the footsteps of a host of other tech companies like Twitter, Facebook and Yahoo who rely on bug bounty platform Hackerone.

“Like other major tech players have been doing as of late, we’re tapping some of the most talented security researchers as a proactive and precautionary measure – in addition to our dedicated developer and security teams – to ensure not only the security of our site but that of our users, which is paramount to us,” Pornhub Vice President Corey Price said in a statement last week.

If you do manage to hack Pornhub and report your discovered vulnerability with screenshots and proof of concept code within 24 hours, you could be rewarded between $50 and $25,000, “granted entirely at the disrection of Pornnhub”. Pretty sweet deal for looking at porn, right?
