3Com has identified a vulnerability in a popular Linux anti-virus program, the fourth time bug bounty hunters have cashed in on the reward the company's TippingPoint division pays for digging up software flaws.
Since July 2005, TippingPoint has paid researchers for uncovering vulnerabilities. The program, dubbed "Zero Day Initiative," to make clear it was only forking over cash for zero-day bugs, doesn't publish a reward rate structure. 3Com uses the information it acquires from the bounties to add protection via its Digital Vaccine service.
