“Microsoft has awarded its first ever $100,000 bounty to a security researcher who discovered a bug in Windows 8.1. The software giant has traditionally shied away from paying rewards for security issues, but the company announced its first bug bounties earlier this year specifically designed for Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer 11. A Google engineer was first to profit from the bounties with a reward for an IE11 bug.”
