Nonetheless, a good thing is that such opportunities not only help or motivate the hacking community but are also crucial in making tech companies understand the vulnerabilities in their systems that have been left undiscovered by their own security teams.
This way, they could utilize the knowledge gained to improve their internal practices. For the future, we will be seeing patches for all the vulnerabilities disclosed to be rolled out – a usual practice to ensure user security.
