Default $40,000 paid to security bug finders

This previous Geek/Talk thread http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/sh...threadid=28222 gives a little background on this even though it involves a different organization.

iDenfense has announced about $40,000 in bonuses to the top security flaw finders. One person received a $13,000 bonus.

Some security researchers don't feel these cash rewards help make software more secure, but such programs are becoming more popular and more are offering similar programs.
