Have skillz? Well, Google is looking for your help. They are giving out rewards to anyone who can find vulnerabilities that affect any of the following domains:

google.com youtube.com blogger.com orkut.com

This isn't new -- they have been giving out money to hackers that find holes in Google Chrome for a while already. The program must be successful enough to warrant broadening the scope of these rewards to include their web properties too.

According to Google, the types of exploits that will earn you cash include:

XSS XSRF / CSRF XSSI (cross-site script inclusion) Bypassing authorization controls (e.g. User A can access User B's private data) Server side code execution or command injection

If you submit a valid bug, you are looking at a $500 bounty. However, if you're really good, you could earn up to $3133.70.
