Quick reputation gain on HackerOne
Posted in BugBounty Discussion by @malacupa
Hi, would anyone mind sharing an advice on how to quickly gain reputation on HackerOne?
What I mean is if you guys know any program like https://hackerone.com/nodejs-ecosystem which might not even pay for bugs at all but is full of holes as emmental and unlike the linked program actually resolves your issues quickly.
What would be the reason to want to quickly gain reputation on H1? Is it purely to receive more priv invites, or another reason?
Reason I ask is because IMO the 'quick way' to gain rep on hackerone is to just simply hack. Seems obvious, but a lot of people are like, 'Where should I hack? Which program?' - If everyone got recommended the same programs, then that program has a problem :P Spend some time to check through the directory and see what's what :)
Yeah, I was asking because of private invites and free Burp Pro trial.
I was curious if someone here actually tries to gain reputation by doing these programs with wide scope and low/no bounties. Thanks for your input though, I see your point but wanted try asking anyway :)
You get more rep if you get paid out a (good) bounty as opposed to the kudos only programs. I would recommend just picking anything and don't leave until you find a bug to report. That's what I've done recently and I gained over 120 rep in the last week or two.
For all beginners you have the perfect example of basics vuln, search for program like that and keep testing until you find bugs. Hope thats helps someone
