Google brings a new bug bounty platform, so be a participant

According to him, a total of 11,055 weaknesses were found in Google's products during this 10-year period. The company has rewarded 2,022 bug hunters with an average of 30 million.

According to Keller, a lot has changed in the new platform. Which will make Bug Hunters more interactive and competitive. Not only that, interest will be provided to the country-wise leader board and those who find special weaknesses.

Bezos offers 2 billion to NASA to win Elan Musk's contract

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has made a 2 billion offer to NASA to award the Moon Contract to his company Blue Origin. Earlier, NASA had signed an agreement with Alan Musk's company SpaceX.

According to the agreement, a landing craft will have to be built by 2024 to land safely on the surface of the moon. For that, NASA had signed an agreement with SpaceX only last April.

NASA rejected Blue Origin's offer and awarded SpaceX  2.9 billion.

NASA had asked the US government for a total of  3.3 billion for the mission. However, the incident came to light after the US House of Representatives decided to provide only 850 million.

In that case, Bezos would be willing to pay 2 billion. But, instead, he proposes to get the project himself.

Although fully aware of Bezos' proposal, NASA has not yet made its official position public.

Satellite launch process scrapped, what is the plan to keep the satellite by 2022?

An international letter of intent has been rejected for the study required to launch Nepal's own satellite. The regulatory body, the Nepal Telecommunications Authority, on Thursday issued a notice dismissing the process aimed at keeping the satellite.

Earlier, the NEA had called for international bids to conduct research on 'business modality' and operation to prepare necessary regulation and security policy for the satellite. Nine companies had applied for the tender on December 20.

In the first phase, NEA had made public a shortlist of five foreign companies. These included KPMG Assurance and Consulting Services of India, Space Partnership International of the United States, London Economics Limited of the United Kingdom and Euro Consult of France, S3Tail Inc. of Dubai.

NEA had demanded RFP from the five listed companies. Of these, only four companies, including KPMG Assurance and Consulting Services of India, London Economics Limited of the United Kingdom, Euro Consult of France, and S3Tail Inc. of Dubai, submitted RFG.

According to Achutananda Mishra, Joint Spokesperson of NEA, the process was canceled as the bidder was not responsible.

"This means that the criteria set by the authority have not been met," he said. "Some of the participating companies have not had their power of attorney erased, some have not had their manpower erased." That is why the process has been canceled. Even if this process is scrapped, a new process will be taken forward in the next few days. '

Earlier, the government had presented a plan to launch Nepal's own satellite in the sky by 2022. Based on that, NEA had started the study process. It is now seen that there will be a challenge to achieve the target set by the government after completing this process for 8 months and starting a new process.
