    TLMD, you really, really need a hobby. I suggest fishing. A girlfriend/boyfriend would also be advised.

    Don't judge the off topic, just trying to help back a fellow member. He/She is committing so much..

They are usually called Security Bounty Programs, i.e. to encourage people to report security vulnerabilities directly to the company so they can be fixed
    Actually I didn't understand the OP that way. I thought he was asking for something like a compensation for issues that are (or were) in vB.

    You don't get paid, if you enter bugs/issues in JIRA. You are encouraged to do so, but after all it is a voluntary thing.

They are usually called Security Bounty Programs, i.e. to encourage people to report security vulnerabilities directly to the company so they can be fixed rather than exploited. A list of most of the companies that operate a Bounty Program is here: https://bugcrowd.com/list-of-bug-bounty-programs/

    Is this a serious question? If yes: Why should someone pay for (so far) undetected issues? Software can always have security issues. And when they are found, they get fixed. That is the way it works, unless – maybe (depending on the law that applies) – you can prove the security issues were left in the software intentionally.
