NSS Labs recently announced that it will pay rewards for working exploits for 12 vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer and Flash.

"The company, which has set aside $4,400 in reward money, plans to give $100 to $500 to the first people to submit a working exploit for the vulnerabilities," writes Network World's Jeremy Kirk. "Ten of the vulnerabilities concern Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser and two were found in Adobe's Flash multimedia program."

"The exploits must be client-side remote exploits that can result in code execution," Kirk writes. "Proof-of-concept code and denial-of-service conditions do not qualify."
