Launched in 1999, 20 Minuten is the number one daily commuter newspaper for Switzerland. It provokes discussion with its news on politics, business, sport, entertainment and services. 20 Minuten is part of the 20 Minuten media network, which encompasses the commuter papers 20 Minuten, 20 minutes and 20 minuti, the news portals 20minuten.ch, 20minutes.ch and 20minuti.ch/tio.ch as well as the people, fashion and lifestyle magazine 20 Minuten Friday and the Friday Blog. Our digital platform reaches about 60% of all Swiss citizens.

Security is a top priority for us and that is why we are running a public Bug Bounty program for our 20 Minuten website (https://www.20min.ch). We want to ensure our newspaper can stand up to the best hackers in the world from day 0!
This website is always in development and subject to continuous updates and new features. Other 20 Minuten websites, including legacy sites, are not part of this program, so please focus your efforts on www.20min.ch. Checkout the Target Groups for more information and good luck!


For the initial prioritization/rating of findings, this program will use the Bugcrowd Vulnerability Rating Taxonomy. However, it is important to note that in some cases a vulnerability priority will be modified due to its likelihood or impact. In any instance where an issue is downgraded, a full, detailed explanation will be provided to the researcher - along with the opportunity to appeal, and make a case for a higher priority.
