Hackers For Hire: Exploring Bug Bounty Programs | by Investigator515 | Dec, 2023 | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker | #hacking | #aihp

Bug Bounty programs can be a great way to test your skills without breaking the law.

The Background:

We started our writing journey by wanting to make technology less technical, providing tutorials, resources and breakdowns that were easy to understand and implement. Along the way, there’s been projects and explorations around technology and open source intelligence, as well as strategies around implementing them into your workflow.

One thing we haven’t done though, is talked about ways to apply these skills for financial gain. Open source intelligence and cyber security are both fields where new ideas and innovation are important, leading to new ways of doing different jobs and new vulnerabilities that are to be patched before exploitation.

We’ve talked about HacktheBox and TryHackMe before in previous articles, explaining how they are great resources for people that work in IT. You don’t even have to be a master hacker to appreciate these resources either, as they’ll also provide information about open source intelligence, developing good cyber hygiene habits and other useful topics as well.

However the issue with resources such as these is that beyond a point, they can provide a stale environment for skills development, often varying greatly from how you’ll apply your skills practically in the read world during a pentest or red team engagement. As we’ve stressed previously though, performing real world engagements without approval is, in most parts of the world illegal.

So your lab skills are polished, you’re ready for your first real world engagement yet you’ve got no where to go?? Read on, we have a solution.

If you’re relatively new to the game, it might surprise you to learn that there’s places where you can compromise machines, perform exploits and even hack government systems without landing yourself a prison holiday. It’s known as Bug Bounty, or Bug hunting and it’s a real world application of cyber security skills that’s an essential part of providing security to real world applications and infrastructure.
