A 27-year-old Indian developer, Bhavuk Jain was rewarded $100,000 (over Rs 75.5 lakh) by Apple for pointing out a bug in Sign-in verification in Apple account verification.

A software glitch- known as ‘Zero vulnerability bug crept in with a patch update in Apple’ software, which if unnoticed could have allowed a hacker to break into the user’s Apple account to gain access to third party apps like Giphy, Airbnb, Spotify, and Dropbox.

Bhawuk Jain holds a BTech degree in Electronics and communication and first noted the bug when signing in with Apple ID, and the third party apps were accessed without any further additional verifications.
