The bug bounty program "will continue indefinitely at Microsoft's discretion", the company added.
Along with the Vulnerability if a researcher is able to find any critical or important class remote code execution which effects the customer's piracy will also be eligible for the Bounty program by the company. The Program consists of four categories which gives good hackers monetary payouts ranging between $500 to $250,000.

Facebook, Google, and Microsoft offer multiple bug bounty programs, but smaller companies also increasingly have at least one: Avoiding the next security fiasco is priceless. Other points of focus include Mitigation Bypass (things that break Microsoft's security sandboxing) and Bounty for Defense, Windows Defender Application Guard, Microsoft Edge and, most notably, Windows Insider Preview, the company's early access program for Windows 10 builds.

Under the new terms, those who find a vulnerability in the slow Windows Insider release track will be awarded $30,000. Paying a bounty costs the company only a little compared to fixing loopholes after it's too late.
