Nintendo’s HackerOne program extended to Switch; first bounties paid

Posted on April 11, 2017 by (@OnePunchMaz) in 3DS, News, Switch

In December of last year, Nintendo announced that it teamed up with HackerOne in order to find security flaws and vulnerabilities concerning the 3DS. Anyone can submit a report detailing such flaws, and if Nintendo deems it significant enough, they will pay the person who submitted the report a bounty ranging from $100 to $20,000, depending on various factors.

Last month, Nintendo extended this deal to include Switch security flaws, specifically the following:

 

  • System vulnerabilities regarding Nintendo Switch
    • Privilege escalation from userland
    • Kernel takeover
    • ARM® TrustZone® takeover
  • Vulnerabilities regarding Nintendo-published applications for Nintendo Switch
    • Userland takeover

It seems like the program is working, since today Nintendo has rewarded three people with a bounty (the sum was not disclosed).
