Help Mozilla squash a bug, earn some money. Nothing wrong with that, right? The organization that brought us Firefox has expanded its program that pays people between $500 and $,300 for finding and reporting glitches in its software. The program originally only applied to Mozilla’s applications, like Firefox and Thunderbird, but now applies to its various online sites, like getpersonas.com and addons.mozilla.org.

The aim of the newly expanded program is to help secure the rest of the members of the Mozilla family.

Security researchers (who are the real hackers, by the way; push-button script kiddies are not hackers) are to be on the lookout for things like cross-site scripting (XSS) and injection that could cause the Mozilla Organization headaches down the road.
