Nintendo Will Pay Up To $20k If You Discover Hardware Or Software Nintendo Switch Vulnerabilities

Nintendo, through the Hacker One program, will reward you if you’re successful in uncovering exploits and vulnerabilities for Nintendo Switch hardware and software. The program is already in operation for the 3DS and Wii U (and has been since last December) but now Nintendo have extended the reward scheme for their latest home console.

Below are examples of vulnerabilities that Nintendo is interested in receiving information about:

  • System vulnerabilities regarding Nintendo Switch
    • Privilege escalation from userland
    • Kernel takeover
    • ARM® TrustZone® takeover
  • Vulnerabilities regarding Nintendo-published applications for Nintendo Switch
    • Userland takeover
  • System vulnerabilities regarding the Nintendo 3DS family of systems
    • Privilege escalation on ARM® ARM11™ userland
    • ARM11 kernel takeover
    • ARM® ARM9™ userland takeover
    • ARM9 kernel takeover
  • Vulnerabilities regarding Nintendo-published applications for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems
    • ARM11 userland takeover that doesn’t require other hacks or tools (“secondary” exploits would be those that require other hacks or tools to be effective; those would be out of scope for this program)
    • Hardware vulnerabilities regarding either the Nintendo Switch system or the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems
  • Low-cost cloning
  • Security key detection via information leaks

Cash incentives start at $100 but the bigger the exploit, the bigger the reward with reports indicating that funds can increase up to $20,000.
