Microsoft's new Xbox Bounty program allows users to earn money for reporting bugs. Some reports can pay up to $20,000 for finding security vulnerabilities.
Wish Bugthesda did this, Elder Scrolls VI would make me a millionaire
They do, but the payment is a perma-ban.
Perma IP ban?
and a 20k cap. duh
They'd go bankrupt.
This isn't for common and trivial bugs that cause glitches or something small. This is ONLY for finding and documenting security vulnerabilities. Microsoft does this for all its products. https://www.microsoft.com/e...
Up to, meaning unless it’s a truly big issue where MS could be sued, the tiers below that amount start at about a dollar and go down from there.
Start at $500
MS has done this for a long time. I don't know if it was ever official until recently, or the program may have been different. When I worked in IT, I found vulnerabilities in their software and sent them along to MS to fix. The company I worked for got paid for it instead of me though. Guess they felt since they were paying me, they deserved it, which was in my contract, so I never thought about it.
I just found a bug. It's the xbox series x.
My xbox one has a bug, when I go to the store from the console I cannot see any games... Can I has money now?
What's your gamertag?
No gamertag I guess
My xbox one has a bug, every game i see on it can be played on pc and other console, there's not 1 game i can only play on xbox like there is on ps4 and switch.
There is, they're just not notable
this title should be revised, its not just bug finding, but finding security vulnerabilities and documenting which could save MS alot of money.
Glad they are solving my ant problem. I had no interest in hiring an exterminator.
I saw a ladybug. Where's my money Bill Gates.
Something tells me that’s going to happen to only .5% of big reporters.
