iDefense Offering $10,000 Reward to Find "Critical" Windows Security Flaws

http://blog.washingtonpost.com/secur....dailytech.com

This is a local company, located about 15 minutes from my house. They're giving out $10,000 to any people that find security vulnerabilites in Windows deemed "critical" by Microsoft. That's a pretty good chunk of change.

I just hope the poor company doesn't go out of business paying for all of the flaws Winblows has haha

Maybe they made a deal with MS that any flaws they find they get $20000 , so still 50% profit otherwise i doubt they will do such a campaign without any gain as it looks insane

I say we band together to find a flaw and then split the earnings
