Microsoft unleashes bug bounty program — for betas, tooThe software giant's bug bounty program will aim to fix security flaws, bugs, and vulnerabilities even before products are released.
Do we send the bugg reports to MS or the NSA?
Microsoft's $100,000 bug bounty: Read the fine print06.22.2013 10:30 AMMicrosoft is offering up to $100,000 for vulnerabilities found in Windows 8.1 that are paired with exploits, but it's pretty much up to Microsoft to decide who gets paid how much based on a set of subjective criteria.
So basically they want you to keep all the bugs you find a secret so that you can be the only person claiming the bounty. This way no-one will put all the bugs up on the net to be laughed at.Smooth move.
If somebody dug up three bugs looking to get paid for them, and MS didn't have a decent going rate type price for the first one... I bet the other two would get offered to somebody else first.Just sayin'...
