Microsoft paga por vulnerabilidades

Microsoft on Wednesday announced it will launch a "bug bounty" program, designed to stamp out security vulnerabilities in its software before and after its products are launched.

The software giant has previously offered as much as $250,000 for security vulnerabilities disclosed as part of its BlueHat prize during contests, but the company had yet to offer a long-term, ongoing bug bounty program to encourage researchers to find flaws in its products.


But the twist in the tale is that these bug bounty programs will specifically include the company's pre-release software, such as Internet Explorer 11 preview, which will be included with Windows 8.1 ("Blue") on June 26, helping Microsoft stamp out bugs before its products are released into the wider population.
