The EU comission offers a reward (up to 5000 € + 20 % if a solution is presented) for finding security vulnerabilities in the following open source software: LibreOffice, LEOS, Mastodon, Odoo and CryptPad

ec.europa.eu/info/news/europea

so does this means there is like … an interal EU comission mastodon?

and then it came to me: "joël, you are a journalist! you can just ask them!"
and so I did.

update, so it is in the same thread: there is not (yet?) a EU comission mastodon

@jollysea One day later and I still can’t shake the question: Which custom emoji do they use?!

:poender:

@schokopflaster I guess the emojis are "standard" emojis but blue instead of yellow 🇪🇺

@schokopflaster and then it came to me: "joël, you are a journalist! you can just ask them!"
and so I did.

@jollysea Das ist der investigative Journalismus, der der Welt (und dem Fediverse) fehlt. Hoffe auf super spannende Antwort, vor allem bzgl. der Emoji. :GoldenApple:

@jollysea But in reality what probably happens is when you report a vulnerability and ask for the reward you instead get a search and seizure order served on you.

@bear I'm not an expert, but the platform ("intigriti") seems to have a good track record. I'd hope it's a sincere effort.

@Gargron @jollysea @bear is there some test instance run by anyone who allows to run probes for vulnerabilities or so? Just wondering, not in the business.
