Google has paid independent security experts more than $500,000 dollars who have identified serious security weaknesses in Google products and services. Facebook and Mozilla also have a similar bug bounty program.
PayPal has announced its own Bug Bounty Program

We recognize the important role that security researchers and our user community play in keeping PayPal and our customers secure. If you discover a site or product vulnerability please notify us using the guidelines below.
To encourage responsible disclosure, we commit that – if we conclude that a disclosure respects and meets all the guidelines outlined below - we will not bring a private action or refer a matter for public inquiry.
