Tech Giant Microsoft to Pay Hackers for Bug Bounty Programme

Microsoft recently launched Chromium-based Edge beta for Windows 10, 7, 8/8.1 and macOS

Microsoft has launched a Bug Bounty Programme for Chromium Edge where the company is inviting cybersecurity experts across the world to identify vulnerabilities in the Chromium Edge browser, with rewards ranging from $1,000 to $30,000.

The company is offering rewards in various tiers. Spoofing and tampering reports would earn anywhere between $1,000 and $6,000. Information disclosure and remote code execution will be awarded between $1,000 and $10,000 and elevation of privilege will rake in between $5,000 to $15,000, Digital Trends reported on Sunday.

As per the report, $30,000 will be given in exchange for finding a combination of an Elevation of Privilege flaw and a Windows Defender Application Guard container escape.
