Photo: United Airlines/FacebookTwo hackers have scored a million
frequent-flier miles each on United Airlines for finding security holes in the
airline’s computer systems.
The awards were made under a security program that United started in May.
Technology companies have offered so-called bug bounties, but they are
unusual in the transportation industry.
United spokesman Luke Punzenberger said Thursday that two people have received
the maximum award of 1 million miles each and others got smaller awards.
That’s enough for several first-class trips to Asia or up to 20
round-trips in the U.
S.
He declined to say what kinds of flaws the hackers found but said the
airline’s systems are secure.
