Cash For Bugs!

Google Launch Experimental Vulnerability Reward Program

Google have announced an experimental new vulnerability reward program for Google web properties, following the success of the Chromium open source project's vulnerability reward program. According to the rules (which can be found at Google's Online Security Blog) the program applies to any Google web properties which display or manage "highly sensitive authenticated user data or accounts," and serious bugs that directly impact on the confidentiality or integrity of user data. The base reward for qualifying bugs is $500, but rewards of up to $3,133.7 may be issued. Happy bug-hunting!
