A big thank you from Khalil and I to everyone who helped donate! At this point we are stopping the fund which exceeded our goal by over three thousand dollars! From all the messages I have received, you all have been a part of not just changing Khalil's life but also inspiring so many others. All the best -Marc Maiffret

Update: Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this happen for Khalil. I am leaving this active while I work with gofundme to transfer the funds to Khalil, whom I am now in contact with. I hope this has raised awareness of the importance of independent researchers. I equally hope it has reminded other researchers that while working with technology companies can sometimes be frustrating, we can never forget the greater goal; to help the Internet community at large, just as that community has helped donate over ten thousand dollars to Khalil within a day.

All proceeds raised from this fund will be sent to Khalil Shreateh to help support future security research.

Khalil Shreateh found a vulnerability in and, due to miscommunication, was not awarded a bounty for his work. Let us all send a message to security researchers across the world and say that we appreciate the efforts they make for the good of everyone.

Marc, you are a hero, a saint, and a noble humanist. Good on you for putting such a campaign together and for keeping the spirit of the connected Internet alive - something that Facebook has seemed to forgotten. Well done!

If you transfer the funds using Bitcoin, you could get double the media coverage.
