Back in June of this year, we announced three new bounty programs that will pay researchers for techniques that bypass built-in OS mitigations and protections, for defenses that stop those bypasses and for vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer 11 Preview. This past Friday, we provided some additional details about the results of the IE11 Preview bounty program, which covered the first 30 days of the preview period. Today, we are announcing James Forshaw, a security researcher with Context Information Security, has been awarded the first Mitigation Bypass Bounty, which comes with a prize of $100,000.00. As a reminder, this is an ongoing program, so if you are interested in participating, check out all the details here.
