Over the past 10 months, Microsoft has paid out more than $200,000 USD in bounties to researchers reporting vulnerabilities through the Microsoft Edge Bounty Program. When Microsoft announced this Edge Bounty Program last year, they said that this program will run August 4, 2016 through May 15, 2017. Last month, Microsoft announced that they are extending the end date of this program to June 30, 2017. Today, Microsoft announced that they are changing this program from a time bound to a sustained bounty program and it will continue indefinitely on Microsoft’s discretion.
