Microsoft recently confirmed that the program’s lifespan was extended until June 30th, and that, of course, is good for both researchers involved in the program and for end users.
The first ones, in fact, may still want to win one of the great rewards – up to $ 15,000 in case of a vulnerability that allows remote code execution in Microsoft Edge with the latest builds (provided the developer is in Able to demonstrate the effectiveness of exploitation) – seconds can use a browser that is more and more immune to attacks.
Extremely welcome, especially at a time when the theme of security threats has become increasingly contemporary – think of the recent WannaCry attack.
