Facebook pays hackers to find bugs

PALO ALTO, Calif.

Facebook launched its Bug Bounty initiative three weeks ago in an effort to make its site more secure. It has already paid out more than $40,000 to researchers and hackers who've exposed flaws. No word on the average payout per person.

To qualify, hackers must send in the details of any bugs they uncover.
