17 sept is a special day for me . The day which made me officially highest earning family member 😛 . A year ago today Facebook paid me $5000 for two Clickjacking in their mobile site (m.facebook.com).
There is a quite interesting story behind this. I was into bug hunting from a long time but till 11 sept. I was struggling for my first bounty. You might I was not trying hard even I confess I never tried too hard in hunting till date.
But what I can say is your networks on your social accounts (Twitter,Facebook ) matters a lot. Even though they don’t share “how they do things” but they motivate you with the amount they get from bounties.
Here’s the timeline:
12 sept: Asana accepted the CJ and rewarded me $100
15 sept: One of my friend got $5000 from Facebook for some facebook group bug, I was jealous and motivated .Started digging ,found two CJ . One with facebook message (new thread) , other with facebook notes.
17 sept: Both Clickjacking got valid and Bang ..
$5000 is more than enough for CJ. Well, there might be some luck or fate. Thanks Adiya for sharing his tool.
