ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsOn one hand where most of us are busy answering calls of those relatives, who maintain a list of kids appearing for board exams, the rest of us are busy being that sadist relative whose sole purpose in life is to ask 'Result kaisa tha beta, Kitne number aaye?” Now, while Indian teenagers are busy attending those once-in-a-year calls, kids outside are achieving things that can make anyone burn with jealousy. One such wonder kid is Ezequiel Pereira, who has now become a matter of envy for every 17-year-old out there. © Pixabay Where can we sign up for this job where you get paid for finding flaws in a company's security system? Well, don't look far. Just open Google and type Google security loophole and you'll have your answer. Pereira hit the jackpot after participating in Google's 'bug bounty program', a program where the company handsomely rewards ethical hackers and security experts for showcasing their skills. Pereira found a bug in Google's security and took home $36000 (approx.) as a reward. © Twitter If you calculate the amount in Indian currency, it's roughly around Rs. 24 lakh, which is more (read double) than what most of us earn in a year. At the age of 10, when most of us were busy playing 'Hide and Seek' and Gully Cricket outside, Pereira got his first computer and by 11, he was already a part of a programming class. In the following years, he learnt different coding languages and techniques. He inched closer to his dream when he won a coding contest and Google flew him to its California headquarters in 2016. © Twitter Now this Uruguayan teenager's talent has paid off as Google rewarded him for finding a flaw that would have reportedly allowed him to make changes to the internal company systems. He found the bug earlier this year, but only got the permission now to talk about how he discovered it, once Google confirmed that the issue has been fixed. In fact, it isn't just the money he's earned with his skills. He's also found a place in Google's Hall of Fame. He's ranked at number 12. People like Pereira make us feel extremely proud and give us hope that nothing is impossible to achieve if you put your hard work and dedication to any job. Source: CNBC
