Facebook bounty program

Facebook have recently started a bug hunting bounty project, similar to what MS and Google have, for any white hat anywhere in the world to volunteer their skills for. Facebook is willing to pay upto $500 or more for any security hole found, but ask that researchers take oath that they give Facebook a 'reasonable' amount of time before they publish their research publically.

Have to say, good on Facebook, to me they have really tightened their security - I use the text message service with a code number if an unauthorized device accesses my Facebook account and it hasn't failed me in testing it out, aling with entering a device name.

Good work Facebook, keep it up, +1 to you guys on this.
