U.S. Army brings back bug bounty for round two

Hack the Army is back. The military service announced Thursday it will once again partner with HackerOne to run a bug bounty, allowing ethical hackers to try their hands at finding vulnerabilities within more than 60 of the Army's publicly accessible web assets.
