This year, Safari on macOS will offer two rewards, one of which is a $60,000 reward for a sandbox escape, and the other of which is a $70,000 reward for a kernel-level privilege escalation. In addition, the bonus for the Tesla Model 3 flaw will be up to $500,000.

It is reported that all vulnerabilities found during the competition will be notified to companies so that they can patch the vulnerabilities in a timely manner.
