Reward: $15K for nastiest Edge browser bugs
Microsoft today launched another bug bounty for Edge, the default browser within Windows 10.
The award program is similar to one Microsoft ran from April to June 2015 for the then-named Spartan. Microsoft officially rebranded Spartan as Edge in late April.
Bounties of up to $15,000 will be paid for remote code execution (RCE) vulnerabilities in Edge on the Insider builds. Insider is Microsoft’s preview program which issues preliminary code to a large pool of volunteers.
RCE vulnerabilities are considered among the most dangerous, because by definition they let attackers run malicious code on a compromised device.
