    Nintendo has updated their successful 'Bug Bounty Program' running on HackerOne to now include the recently launched Nintendo Switch hybrid, instead of just giving rewards of up to $20k for disclosing exploits on the Nintendo 3DS, now you can do so for Switch!

    We reported a while ago, on when Nintendo launched their 3DS Bug Bounty Program, and back then we commented on that it would be test case and for sure will be expanded to the 'Switch', and yep, we were right Nintendo has now updated the site to include the Switch. and good news for those willing 'exploit' the system, them doing so has confirmed the security on the Nintendo Switch is using ARM® TrustZone®, so that is the area you need to focus on. Thanks for telling us Nintendo and pointing us in the right direction!
    You can read more about their 'Bug Bounty Program', at the official site linked below, but it seems that Nintendo is very quick to get a head-start on any possible exploits being publicly or privately disclosed for their newly launched Switch, by throwing cash up to $20k for them, but personally that is a really just a drop in the bucket to what a 'commercial product' could make if produced someday in the future for their Nintendo Switch hybrid just launched.
