06:58 EDTKCGDark markets could cause more harm than high-frequency trading, Reuters says
After a book by financial author Michael Lewis sparked worries that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market, former regulators and academics say a more serious threat to investors could be the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges, reported Reuters. Top internalizers include units of KCG Holdings (KCG), Citadel, UBS (UBS), and Citigroup (C). Dark pool operators include Credit Suisse (CS) and Morgan Stanley (MS). In an attempt to earn back some of the retail orders, exchanges such as IntercontinentalExchange Group's (ICE) New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq (NDAQ), and BATS Global Markets, have allowed brokerages to place dark pool-style orders on their platforms, with the trade hidden until after it is executed.

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
