Microsoft announced the new Xbox Vulnerability Rewards Program (Xbox Bounty Program) yesterday. Those who find it open on Xbox along with the program will be able to receive a reward of up to $ 20,000 from Microsoft.
Technology firms are organizing vulnerability reward programs to identify the vulnerabilities of the products they develop. When the developers detect a security vulnerability in the product developed by the company, they are rewarded by the company.
In this context, Microsoft launched the Xbox Vulnerability Rewards Program. As part of Microsoft’s rewards program, players, security researchers and other people will be rewarded by the Xbox team when they find a vulnerability in the Xbox Live network and its services. In proportion to the severity and impact of the vulnerability, Microsoft’s award will start from $ 500 to $ 20,000.
You must be a member of Xbox’s site to participate in the Microsoft vulnerability reward program for Xbox. After signing up, you must create a test account to investigate the vulnerability.
