To make Windows 10 secure and bug-free, Microsoft has announced a new round of Windows Bounty Program, under which bug finders will be rewarded with $250,000 if they find bugs in Microsoft virtualization software. The bug finder will be given $ 500 to 2,50,000 (about Rs 1.6 crore).

Microsoft started the bug finding program from the year 2012 itself. Now it has been extended to Windows 10 as well. According to a post posted on the company’s website late Wednesday, a reward will be given for reporting any critical bug, code execution, elevation of privilege or design flaw, that threatens customer’s privacy and security.

the company said while announcing“If a researcher reports a bug that Microsoft already knows about, the first person to report it will be paid a maximum of 10 percent of the highest amount.”

Other technology companies such as Google, Facebook and Apple have similarly rewarded those who find bugs and defects in their software.
