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.
