Google has announced the new platform and community designed to host all its Vulnerability Rewards Programs (VRP) under the same roof.

Since launching its first VRP in January 2010, the company has rewarded 2,022 security researchers from 84 different countries worldwide a total of $29,357,516 for reporting over 11,000 bugs. Rewards range from $100 to $31,337, but can drastically increase for exploit chains.

The new platform "brings all of our VRPs (Google, Android, Abuse, Chrome and Play) closer together and provides a single intake form that makes it easier for bug hunters to submit issues," Google said.

Google also launched a new Bug Hunter University, which would allow bug hunters to brush up on their skills or start a hunting learning streak.
