Story Of My First Swag- HackerRank

Hi Everyone,

This will be a very short blog post on how I got my first swag.

This days I am regular user of hackerone platform for bug hunting. Well, one day I woke up started my machine and rather than going to hackerone url, I googled it and where I landed was at hackerrank site, whose name is similar to hacker one.

What is HackerRank?
HackerRank is a site for hackers from all over the world to solve programming problems in different CS domains like algorithms, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and to excel in different programming paradigms like functional programming.

WOW... What a site to learn coding :) So I registered myself on their platform. Well and you know all when I visit any site, I see it differently.


After my registration completed. I went to their setting section and guess what I found XSS  :D

I informed this bug to hackerrank team. And they fixed it right away.


I would like to thank hackerone team for fixing bug so quickly and rewarding me with my first swag :D

This is my first swag so writing this blog post. But soon I will be writing more blogs on some interesting bugs which I found recently

So Stay Tuned.
