SquareX, the trailblazer in browser-based cybersecurity led by acclaimed entrepreneur Vivek Ramachandran, has wrapped up its much-awaited Bug Bounty program. This rigorous evaluation reaffirms the product’s resilience and potency in ensuring online safety for consumers. For six weeks, the program, with a grand prize of USD 25,000, had hackers and security researchers from around the globe testing Malware.rip to the hilt to detect any security flaws.
Overwhelming Response and Incentives
SquareX was thrilled to see an incredible influx of Bug Bounty hunters, predominantly from India, the USA, and Germany. These skilled professionals, along with their counterparts from various parts of the world, launched innumerable automated scans and deliberate attacks on Malware.rip, their sole objective being to identify and report potential security vulnerabilities.
In the middle of the program, SquareX raised the stakes by doubling the reward and placing numerous “Easter Eggs” to fuel and incentivize the community’s dedication. However, despite the enticing rewards and the heightened prize money, no critical bugs surfaced during the Bug Bounty program. The only discovery was one “Easter Egg” vulnerability, despite the tireless efforts from the hacker community.
Trust Built Through Rigorous Testing
“The results of the Bug Bounty program are very encouraging,” said Vivek Ramachandran, Founder of SquareX. “The rigorous testing that we received from the global hacker community allows us to establish trust amongst our users and underscores our security-first product building philosophy.”

“The results of the Bug Bounty program are very encouraging,” Ramachandran further explained. “The rigorous testing that we received from the global hacker community allows us to establish trust amongst our users and underscores our security-first product building philosophy.”
