Microsoft Teams users can earn up to $30,000 for finding and reporting bugs in its software. Microsoft has set up bug bounty awards for people who find and report bugs. The Redmond tech giant is hedging its bets on bug bounties as an effective way to keep its users safe. It makes sense on paper, but the reward payouts are far less than what the company would need to shell out if a hacker exploited its systems. It’s easy to imagine all hackers are shady criminal types, but ethical hacking has become a legitimate career thanks to Microsoft’s bounty program.
