HackerOne's 2021 Hacker Report reveals a 63% jump in the number of hackers submitting vulnerabilities to bug bounty programs during the last year.

Earnings for ethical hackers disclosing vulnerabilities to the HackerOne bug bounty program more than doubled to $40 million in 2020, from $19 million in 2019.
