2018 Milestones and Upcoming Plans

Hi folks,

This great year is about to end, and we are here to make a brief summary about the main milestones of 2018 and to share some of our plans for the future.

So far, over 7,700 security researchers found and helped fixing over 165,000 security vulnerabilities following our guidelines of non-intrusive testing.

Security vulnerabilities (mostly XSS) were reported on 992 websites out of 1000 from Alexa Top 1000 websites. Their current average patch rate is now 89.4%.

An average vulnerability patching time (for all websites) went down from 189 days in 2017 to 62 in 2018, almost a 300% increase, emphasizing continuously improving submissions quality. Rating of our fastest fixes is now dominated by patches made in less than 15 mins.

Since the launch of open bug bounty programs for website owners in August 2018, 274 bug bounty programs were created and are currently running with over 766 websites. One can start an open bug bounty program (at no cost) here:
https://www.openbugbounty.org/bugbounty/create/

Highest (publicly disclosed) voluntary payment to a researcher was $15,000 so far. Some of the highlighted (publicly disclosed) awards and gratitudes are listed here:

Quantity of new security researchers (reporting at least one vulnerability a week) increased by almost 200% compared to 2017.

To facilitate even a better and faster contact between website owners and researchers, we plan to provide national CERTs with free API for our database (without vulnerability details - that belong to the researchers). Integration with JIRA and other bugtracking tools are also coming.
Otherwise, we remain open, non-commercial and transparent, putting in touch website owners and security researchers from all over the world.

Thanks for staying with us and helping making web a safer place! Have a safe 2019 and please spread a good word about OBB if you like it ;]

Yours,

OBB Team
