Indian bought Google.com for $12 but owned it for a minute

Indian Sanmay Ved bought Google.com for $12, owned it for a minute donate his $10,000 reward

He was the owner of Google.com for a minute on September 29, because of a bug on the recording platform domains of Big G, Sanmay Ved was able to buy the world’s busiest site for only $ 12. 

Then, after 60 seconds, everything is back to normal: the search engine is back in the hands of Mountain View and the boy was repaid. It’s a strange story, that you do not know well the causes. It seemed a matter ended (we told here ).

The reward 
Instead, a little over a week away, Ved was contacted by the team responsible for the security of Big G, who offered a reward for having discovered the bug. The figure is not known, we only know that it is more than $ 10,000. 

Reward users who find vulnerabilities is a common practice among technology giants. To be unusual is the choice of Ved, who refused the money and asked the company to donate the sum of the Art of Living Foundation, India. 

In a post on LinkedIn Ved, who is of Indian descent, comments on his decision: “I chose the donation is directed to the educational program of the Art of Living, which handles 404 schools spread across 18 states of India, offers a free education to more than 39,200 children from the slums, from tribes and from the countryside, places are widespread poverty and child labor.

“But that’s not all: the giant of web searches was so impressed by the gesture of the boy who has doubled the money offered to charity. 

“Money does not interest me” 
Ved in the past has been a Google employee and continues to love the company founded by Sergey Brin and Larry Page. You can tell from his photos on social networks, where the boy appears with a sweatshirt or t-shirt with rounded characters of Big G. 

Now Ved is to complete an MBA at Babson College (a prestigious postgraduate course in materials management). He has always been concerned with educational projects.

And despite the subjects he is studying, he has never been attached to the money: “Money does not interest me. All that has never had to do with money. I want to give a good example and show that people who hunt bugs do not always do it for money,” he said.
