Large technology companies usually have their own security teams, and they also cooperate with external security experts to discover security vulnerabilities in their products to improve product security.
For example, Microsoft also cooperates with the security community and provides rewards to security experts who submit vulnerabilities, and encourages security experts to discover various security vulnerabilities in Microsoft products.
A few days ago, Microsoft released the annual review of the bug bounty program. In the past year, Microsoft paid $13.6 million in bonuses to security experts.
Among them, the single largest bonus is $200,000, which belongs to Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machine security vulnerabilities. The average reward for each vulnerability of all projects exceeds $10,000.
In the past year, more than 340 security experts from 58 countries or regions participated in the vulnerability bounty program and submitted more than 1,200 reports that met the requirements.
Microsoft says this fully reflects the talent and creativity of the global security research community and their valuable partnership in responding to ever-changing security challenges.
Security experts from China, the United States, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom are very active. These security experts provide Microsoft with more security reports to win high prizes.
Next, Microsoft will continue to cooperate with external security experts to better improve product security, especially in the face of customer privacy and security risks.
At the same time, Microsoft will also provide higher rewards for external security experts and encourage more security experts to actively participate in and study security vulnerabilities in various Microsoft products.
