Platform will be leveraged to identify and resolve security issues in automobile software.

FCA US, a member of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles family, has launched a public bug bounty program on the Bugcrowd platform to identify potential vulnerabilities in automobile software, according to various news reports.

FCA, whose Jeep Wrangler was recently a victim of β€˜car hacking’ in Houston, plans to use this public channel to address cybersecurity issues facing the automobile industry.

The tie up with Bugcrowd, a crowdsourced community comprising thousands of security researchers, aims to help FCA identify vulnerabilities in product security and implement fixes to improve the safety of its vehicles.

β€œCar manufacturers have the opportunity to engage the community of hackers that is already at the table and ready to help, and FCA US is the first full-line automaker to optimize that relationship through its paid bounty program," saysΒ Casey Ellis of Bugcrowd.

Reward payout will be managed by Bugcrowd and could be anything between $150 and $1,500, according to a PR Newswire press release.
