Microsoft Bounty Program Updates: Faster bounty review, faster payments, and higher rewards

Tuesday, April 02, 2019

In 2018 The Microsoft Bounty Program awarded over $2,000,000 to encourage and reward external security research in key technologies to protect our customers. Building on that success, we are excited to announce a number of improvements in our bounty programs to better serve the security research community. Faster bounty review – As of January 2019, the Cloud, Windows, and Azure DevOps programs now award bounties upon completion of reproduction and assessment of each submission, rather than waiting until the final fix has been determined.
