Has anyone done bug bounties and how do you feel about them?

How do you deal with the risks involved?

How well do you do with them?

Wondering because I may want to do one sometime. Thanks.

Best,

I haven't. But I have friends who have. They do make quite a bit of money. One guy I knew made 2k$ or something in monero just a few months ago. And I hear some professionals actually make a living on bug bounties.

Always read the rules and terms regarding bug bounties. See what's off-scope/not allowed. Read on their disclosure policies etc. And always make sure they do have a bug bounty programme in the first place. If unsure, a good idea is to contact them.

However using good opsec could be a good habit either way. Use vpn and btc address. However some bug bounties like pentagons one-hacker programme require you to register with them and give your full information like ID and stuff. So check for that.

In my opinion. It all depends on your skills, dedication and mindset. A good hacker tries everything and never gives up! :p

Sure, go for it. There's a lot of resources of this online. For starters https://www.reddit.com/r/bugbounty/ and if you more into programming check out source bounties https://www.bountysource.com/
