Microsoft awards $100,000 to researcher for attack technique
Microsoft has awarded $100,000 to researcher James Forshaw for a new attack technique which bypasses an attack mitigation in Windows 8.1.
The reward $100,000 is the maximum payout in Microsoft's Mitigation Bypass Bounty program.
Mitigation Bypass is one of three bounty programs announced in June by Microsoft's Katie Moussouris. Another was a special program for critical vulnerabilities in the Internet Explorer 11 Preview.
