    Smart move by them, that should give far more incentive to help Mozilla out. I expect Google will raise theirs as well now, if they have good sense.

    But $1,337 reward seems so much more pleasing :D

    That's only for very critical vulnerabilities, and up till now that $1337 has just been rewarded once. On the bright side, Google just upped it to $3,133.7 ;)
    Though the standard vulnerability fee is still $500 and Mozilla gives 3K for every vulnerability :)
