Microsoft's $100,000 bug bounty: Read the fine print
06.22.2013 10:30 AM
Microsoft 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.

Fred Nerd:
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.
