Facebook paid out more than $1.5M to security researchers who helped it find and fix software bugs and security vulnerabilities in its software code, the company said. The company says it has been working to grow its bug bounty program since 2011, and "We received 14,763 submissions in 2013, a 246% increase from 2012. Of these, 687 were valid and eligible to receive rewards. 6% of eligible bugs were categorized as high severity. We've paid over $2M since we got started in 2011, and in 2013 we paid out $1.5M to 330 researchers across the globe. 2014 is looking good so far. The volume of high-severity issues is down, and we're hearing from researchers that it's tougher to find good bugs." Reference Link

11:56 EDTYELPYelp drops again after revealing subpoenas are issued monthly
Shares of Yelp (YELP) are declining for a second straight day after the Federal Trade Commission disclosed yesterday that it had received over 2,000 complaints about the company over the last five years. Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal, citing a Yelp spokeswoman, reported today that the company receives about six subpoenas per month. WHAT'S NEW: Yelp's stock is falling for a second day after the Federal Trade Commission yesterday stated that it had received 2,046 complaints about Yelp from 2008 through March 4, 2014. The agency's statement came in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by Wall Street Journal writer Angus Loten. Many of the subpoenas received by Yelp relate to lawsuits filed by business owners over reviews, The Journal reported. Other subpoenas that the company receives seek the names of anonymous users who have posted reviews on Yelp, the newspaper added. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Later this month, the Virginia Supreme Court is slated to hear a key lawsuit involving Yelp, The Journal noted. The carpet cleaning business that filed the lawsuit alleges that seven negative reviews about it which were placed on Yelp were fraudulent and may have been posted by its competitors, the newspaper stated. The business has sued the seven reviewers for defamation and is trying to force Yelp to disclose the names of the reviewers, The Journal reported. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, SunTrust analyst Robert Peck wrote that the 6% decline in the stock yesterday was "likely an overreaction." The number of complaints received by the FTC against Yelp is not "noteworthy," given the large number of reviews on the website, Peck stated. Moreover, the number of subpoenas that the company receives is "uninspiring," the analyst argued. He kept a Neutral rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Yelp fell $3, or 4%, to $72.60.
09:27 EDTYELPYelp sell-off yesterday likely an overreaction, says SunTrust
SunTrust believes the number of FTC complaints regarding Yelp is not noteworthy given the number of companies that have been reviewed on the company's platform. The firm views yesterday's sell-off in shares as a likely overreaction but keeps a Neutral rating on the name.
