Oops: Bounty-hunter found Vine's source code in plain sight

Re: "the problem was fixed in March"

It was closed within 5 minutes of him notifying them - who knows how long it was open for.

And presumably, since this all happened 4 months ago (meaning by now the source code is likely out of date, and keys were presumably changed asap after discovery), and since this is the first time I've seen it reported, you'd have to assume no real damage was done.

Which means the bug bounty worked as planned.
