Bounties are paid out after a risk assessment (OWASP risk rating methodology) has been made by our R&D team. There are four rates of severity, Critical, High, Medium, Low. All rewards will be paid in the equivalent amount of CPC. Roughly speaking, we calculate the severity of an issue with the following formula:

Bounties are paid out after a risk assessment (OWASP risk rating methodology) has been made by our R&D group. There are four rates of seriousness, Critical, High, Medium, Low. All rewards will be paid in the comparable measure of CPC. Generally, we ascertain the seriousness of an issue with the accompanying recipe

Severity = Impact * Likelihood

The base bounty reward structure after risk assessment is as follows:
