Microsoft Adopts Google’s Bounty StrategyGet your debuggers going.

It looks like Microsoft has finally decided to borrow one of the Google’s ideas: rewards for finding serious web browser bugs.

While the rewards program is not exactly new in the software giant campus, those who wanted to do some serious debugging for the Project Spartan will finally be rewarded the right way: up to $15,000 for a security vulnerability.

The bad news? The clock is ticking and this is not exactly a campaign for a lifetime. Instead, the Project Spartan Bug Bounty will end on June 22, 2015.

Why halt it afterwards? Maybe Microsoft is just being cheap.
