HackerOne has announced that they have now rewarded six individuals with over one million dollars each for their bounty bug finding efforts.

The announcement has come via the official HackerOne Twitter account where they say that the ranks of 7-figure-earning hackers has now reached six people. First off, we have Santiago Lopez who is only 19-years old and was the first to cross the $1 million dollar mark.

Mark Litchfield from the UK was next, followed by Frans Rosen from Sweden, then Nathaniel Wakelam from Australia, Ron Chan from Hong Kong and finally Tommy DeVoss from the US. Each of these individuals have reached the 1 million dollar mark or above.

HackerOne gave a statement regarding Santiago, "He consistently tops the HackerOne leaderboards, reaching the 91st percentile for signal and 84th percentile for impact, which ranks him 2nd overall on the platform with a reputation score of over 45,000".

In other HackerOne news, I recently reported on the possibility of earning $10,000 through a bug bounty program, check out that story here.
