Microsoft has recently released the first Beta preview of Microsoft Edge.

Along with that, to ensure the security of their browser, they also announced the launch of the Microsoft Edge Insider Bounty Program.

With this program, the tech giant welcomes security researchers from all over the world to test and hunt down vulnerabilities in their Chromium-based browser.

The new Edge Bounty Program is open for everyone

And the best part is that they offer up to $30,000 for those who find high-impact faults in Dev and Beta channels. Here’s some key things to keep in mind, highlighted in Microsoft‘s release announcement:

  • We aim to complement the Chrome Vulnerability Reward Program, so any report that reproduces on the latest version of Microsoft Edge but not Chrome will be reviewed for bounty eligibility based on severity, impact, and report quality.
  • Valid reports affecting the next version of Microsoft Edge will receive a 2X bonus multiplier in the Researcher Recognition Program.
  • Faster rewards: the new Microsoft Edge bounty program will provide bounty will award upon completion of reproduction and assessment of each submission.

This new bounty program will run alongside the existing Microsoft Edge (EdgeHTML) on Windows Insider Preview bounty program.

So, if you’re a member of the security research community, you have one more reason to get to work and track down vulnerabilities in Microsoft‘s browser.
