Laxman’s efforts in 2015 to help Facebook fix these flaws made him win $12,500 and $10,000 through two bounties. “I often work on a platform called Burp Suite, a tool to test the security of an app, along with browsers like Google Chrome and Firefox. There are many times when I don’t find any flaws, and don’t know for sure what I might find. But, when I find any anomaly, I report it to the tech companies. While it took me about a month to find a flaw in Instagram, it took the company two months to rectify it, after which they rewarded mewith the bounty,” elaborates Laxman.
