It looks like Microsoft is following Google’s steps and will be rewarding those that dedicate their days and nights seeking various security flaws.
According to Katie Moussouris, Senior Security Strategist at Microsoft, the software giant is paying $28,000 in bounties for the vulnerabilities that were discovered in IE11.
If you are wondering what effect money has on people, Microsoft said that during first 30 days of the IE10 beta they did not receive any bulletin class reports, compared to “several” security vulnerabilities reported in Internet Explorer 11.
While the exact number remains a mystery, it’s reported that the reward can be as high as $11,000 per bug.
