Instagram Pays £7,000 Reward To 10-Year-Old Hacker

The boy is the youngest ever recipient of their ‘bug bounty’ prize

Instagram has paid out a £7,000 reward to a 10-year-old hacker from Helsinki. The boy, named Jani, discovered that he was able to delete comments on images posted by other users. Facebook, who owns Instagram, said that the issue had been quickly solved after it was discovered by the boy, before confirming that he was the youngest recipient of their ‘bug bounty’ prize. Despite not technically being able to join the site due to being three years short of Instagram’s age restriction, Jani proved his theory after he emailed Facebook in February and security engineers set up a test account for him. The boy told newspapers in Finland that he planned to spend his money on a brand new bike, football equipment and computers for his brothers.
