Facebook said that it paid more than US$1 million to scientists who reported bugs on its social networking site, with India stacked up second regarding the amount of bug abundance beneficiaries. "The countries with the fastest growing number of recipients are, in order, the U.S., India, Turkey, Israel, Canada, Germany, Pakistan, Egypt, Brazil, Sweden, and Russia," Collin Greene, security engineer at Facebook, said in the statement.

In an statement on its website, Facebook said that India was second on the list of nations with the increasing number of beneficiaries of Facebook's Bug Bounty program. Facebook had begun the project around 2 years ago to remunerate security specialists who report issues and urge individuals to help keep the site safe and secure. "Our Bug Bounty program allows us to harness the talent and perspective of people from all kinds of backgrounds, from all around the world," Greene added.
