Heavy Demand on Bug Bounty
We started a national bug bounty call in Turkey. The purpose of this call is to help young people who are eager to become cyber security professionals. Our Community Manager Salih and top researchers from our platform gather with student club members to inform them about bug bounty, and to share their experiences and stories as cyber security researchers. So far, our call was answered by many student clubs including Istanbul University and Middle East Technical University, and it keeps getting answers from many more.

Open Bug Bounty is not bound to a time or researcher profile. It is open to public where anyone can contribute at any time.
Tip from Our Platform: “SQL Injections”
✔️ SQL injection vulnerabilities occur when requests sent to the web server can reach the database without being filtered.
✔️ For example, if the SQL requests that a person who wants to extract unauthorized data from the system writes in the input field can be run in the database, there is SQL Injection.
