Players who can find Valorant anti-cheat exploits will be offered up to $100K

Riot Games has opened HackerOne applications


Vanguard, Riot Games’ anti-cheat system which launches on start-up has been subject to a lot of scrutiny over the last couple of days. But now, to make sure its as safe as possible, Riot Games is offering bounties up to $100,000 to players who can find exploits that leverage the specific anti-cheat kernel driver.

“If you’re able to help us protect our players and their data by responsibly identifying new security issues for us to fix, you are awesome and we want to reward you,” Riot Games says on its HackerOne profile (via Blue’s News and VG 24/7).

The studio is offering bounties between $25,000 and $100,000, depending on the severity of the exploit found. The exploits must be done on the latest update of Vanguard and pentesters must have working proof as well as a detailed report for Riot to pay out.

CS:GO fan 2Eggs, who helped Valve fix vulnerabilities in its shooter and developed an AI to catch hackers, is one of the pentesters looking to get theit hands on the bounties.

Of course, there’s a lot more to the bounty guide than we’ve written above, so if you’re interested in joining the hunt, you’re probably going to want to read the full list here.

Valorant is currently in its closed beta, although we’re not far off from the game’s full release. If you still haven’t managed to get a beta code, all you need to do is watch some streams.
