Starlink wants you to hack it — and make $25,000

-

- Advertisment -

You can get paid up to $25,000 to find bugs in Starlink’s satellite internet network, Insider reported Monday.

SpaceX posted a document last week outlining a challenge to hackers after Lennert Wouters, a security researcher in Belgium, presented at a conference that he was able to hack Starlink with a device built for just $25.

Starlink is a satellite internet network that provides high-speed, broadband internet in remote and rural locations. It is also a division of Elon Musk’s space exploration company, SpaceX, and one of his many business ventures.

“We find the attack technically impressive and it is the first attack of its kind that we are aware of in our system,” SpaceX said in the document.

The challenge is also described on Bugcrowda crowdsourced cybersecurity site.

“SpaceX welcomes researchers to test on their platform in a non-disruptive manner and submit findings as outlined below,” the listing said.

Based on the type of vulnerability you discover, and if you meet certain criteria, such as “good faith disclosure” to SpaceX, you can get rewards ranging from $100 to $25,000, according to the list.

As of Monday, Bugcrowd says 41 vulnerabilities have been rewarded with an average payout of $972.85.
