Meta adds Quest 2, Portal and Ray-Ban Stories to its bug bounty program

Facebook’s parent company Meta is updating its bug bounty program to add hardware products from its metaverse division Reality Labs, including its Quest 2, Portal and Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses, the company announced on Friday. Work will play an important role in his “journey to help build the metaverse,” according to a press release.

The press release emphasized that Ray-Ban Stories’ verified bug submissions are eligible for awards, which he hopes will incentivize more researchers to “review the glasses and our other hardware devices.” The minimum reward for discovering a bug is $ 500 and amounts increase based on the device and the potential impact of the bug discovered. The largest payment listed is $ 30,000, but could be increased further at the company’s discretion, for errors that could potentially result in risks to health, safety, or privacy.

Meta offered a list of hypothetical errors and what the payments might look like:

An issue that would allow a malicious third-party application to inject content that is then consumed by a source application, such as images in a slideshow or audio in a call, would receive a payment of ~ $ 1,000 in the section “Problems caused by malicious third-party applications “

A third-party application that gains access to the microphone without requesting it on a Quest device would receive a payment of $ 5,000 in “Unauthorized Microphone Access by Third-Party Application.”

A third-party application in Quest that may crash or disable Guardian would receive a payment of $ 3,000 in “DoS”

Remote code execution via a buffer overflow in Quest’s voice chat library, getting the execution in a privileged first-person app would get paid $ 16,000.

The company first established its bug bounty program in 2011 and says it has been instrumental in helping it find and fix bugs, with nearly $ 2 million in prizes paid to security researchers in the past year alone, according to a blog post from the company’s director of safety engineering, Dan Gurfinkel.

The full list of payments and guidelines can be found here.
