Problems faced by bug bounty hunters while disclosing bugs

  • Not all bug bounty websites are good enough i.e., either they do not have a good UI/UX design or they are not responsive
  • Once a bug is reported to the party concerned, they do not get back to the reporters in time; in the worst-case scenario they never get back to them on the issue
  • Bug bounty hunters do not get paid enough for critical bugs they find; sometimes these bugs would have led to terrible consequences
  • Sometimes companies just fix the bug and say that the report is invalid
