With the Bug Bounty program, MPL says that it is focusing on identifying security vulnerabilities but will also make targeted efforts in devising a timely resolution to tackle them.
The MPL Bug Bounty programme also allows researchers to report any possibility of fraud that can give a player an unfair advantage. The program encourages reports on instances that can enable a player to compromise with the gameplay or the outcomes, like win a game without playing, alter the gameplay or even post outrageous scores. Along with this, reporting of any vulnerability that can target the users on the platform, like taking over user accounts or dumping user data also falls within the scope of the program. MPL will also recognise the contribution of the researchers who have submitted the most insightful reports by featuring them in the Bug Bounty Hall of fame page.
Commenting on the Program, Ruchir Patwa, VP Security and Compliance, MPL, said, “At MPL we are always committed to the player – first approach and the Bug Bounty program has been launched to continue our efforts towards enhancing the user security and safe playing experience on our platform. With this, we also intend to reward and recognize some of the good samaritans of the gaming fraternity. We look forward to some great collaborations with researchers across the globe and continue to create the best gaming experiences for all our users.”
