Uber laid out $375,000 to bug bounty hunters during a live hacking event held in London with partner HackerOne.

The bounties, which ranged from $500 to $50,000 each, were handed out in real-time during the eight-hour event that brought more than 50 hackers together to hunt for vulnerabilities.

“Working with hackers to find and resolve vulnerabilities is an important part of Uber’s ongoing commitment to safety, which includes the security of our products,” Lindsey Glovin, bug bounty manager at Uber, said in a release. “Our relationship with the research community is critical to the success of our bug bounty program and live hacking events give us the opportunity to thank them in-person while amplifying the value they contribute to Uber’s security efforts.”
