Google pays researcher record $21,500 for reporting bugs in sync service

Labunets is no stranger to large bug bounties. Earlier this year, after reporting a string of weaknesses in Facebook's authentication protocol, Labunets was awarded $9,500 by the social networking giant.

Altogether, Google this week paid bounties totaling $34,901 to six researchers, including Payne and Labunets, for reporting eight different bugs. Through Tuesday, the Mountain View, Calif., company has awarded nearly $250,000 thus far this year in bounties or hacking contest prizes.
