Nintendo Is Offering Bounties For Nintendo 3DS Vulnerabilities

The Nintendo family of consoles and handhelds have been well known to be hackable favourites to those who search for homebrew or to be able to pirate content.

Nintendo has partnered up with HackerOne, which is a security firm that works out of San Francisco, to uncover exploits to be discovered and patched up. If you find something to report, you could make up to $20,000 for those who discover vulnerabilities that could cause major issues for Nintendo.

If you’re interested, head on over to HackerOne, and if you’re curious about the bounties, the begin at $100 and increase after that.
