Online gaming site Wurm was recently knocked offline because of a DDoS attack. In response, Wurm is currently offering a €10,000 (or roughly $13,000) reward for information leads to the arrest perpetrators.

Listen to episode 125 of our Security Slice podcast and Craig Young, Ken Westin, Tyler Reguly and Lamar Bailey discuss how similar bounties could work in other industries, why technical attack details are just as valuable as arrests, and the potential dangers that lurk for bounty collectors.
