Microsoft bug bounty reward RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've heard that Microsoft offers a reward for bugs on Windows 10.

    I found an interesting bug, but it doesn't have any security implications on Windows, but it actually causes a commercial Antivirus to not function properly.

    My question is, should I apply to the Microsoft bug bounty reward ?

    If so, how is the payment processed ? by paypal, check ?

    If my windows bug is eligible for a reward, then Microsoft would be supporting a greater cause, which is my antivirus: http://centerofmalwarecontrol.blogspot.com/

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd ask in the Windows 10 forum on Microsoft Community.

  • I'd also ask the AV vendor, it is their responsibility to test / certify.
