Hackers given a million free flight miles

The US airlines United has rewarded two hackers who managed to find security holes in its website with a million free flight miles each.

United has a bug bounty scheme that rewards hackers for quitely disclosing security flaws instead of sharing them online.

"Schemes like this reward hackers for finding and disclosing problems in the right way. That makes the internet safer for all of us," said security consultant DR Jessica Barker.

So legal hacking is accepted then. Cool.....
