When it comes to the information technology, there is no match for the Indians. We, the people, have left everyone behind because of our expertise in the field of technology and software development field. India has produced some of the greatest brains that have been behind the establishment and spread of great many internet-based concepts. Facebook is one such concept, and Arun S Kumar is one such brain.
A young IT expert, and a hardcore Facebook buff, Arun, who is from Kollam in Kerala, is all set to get Rs. 10,70,000/- from Facebook Inc. Some media reports surfaced on Monday claiming that this 20-year-old South Indian lad has found a bug in the Facebook mechanism. According to the news portal India.com, the bug that Arun has unearthed from the Facebook’s harness might have given the hackers a hole to enter the security systems of the social media giant. The bug was so powerful that it could give hackers a complete control over the settings of a Facebook Page in just a few blinks.
In the year 2011, Facebook had declared that it would give $16,000 to the coders and developers who would notify them about Facebook’s coding errors.
Arun, a genius studying at the MES Institute of Technology and Management in the Chathnnoor district, noticed a serious flaw in the coding of Facebook last month, and warned Facebook about this. The developers at Facebook, Inc. evaluated and fixed that bug early this month, and decided to consider Kumar for the reward program, as per its criteria. And, this monetary award of Rs. 10.70 Lakh is being given under its reward program.
