More Ca$h For Google Chrome Exploits

In an ongoing effort to squash security exploits in it's Chrome web browser, Google (like several other large tech firms) continues to hand out the green stuff for hacker reports on vulnerabilities in their product. This time, the award was $60,000 - more that the median annual household income here in the USA - nice work if you can get it. Of course, to get it you need to be a pretty sharp cookie. There's a part of me that would think (if I was a hacker) "Hey, why not earn some legitimate money rather than get caught up in a malware ring or similar, where I can actually end up doing some hard time if I get caught"?
