The Microsoft Security Response Center announced Thursday that they have created a new Xbox Bounty program in which users can report bugs in exchange for some cold hard cash.

Here’s what the announcement says:

The Xbox bounty program invites gamers, security researchers, and technologists around the world to help identify security vulnerabilities in the Xbox network and services, and share them with the Microsoft Xbox team through Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD). Eligible submissions with a clear and concise proof of concept (POC) are eligible for awards up to US$20,000.

Most of the bugs aren’t worth the huge bounty of $20,000 but you could get around $500 for other relevant bugs. For a list of all of the relevant bugs they are looking for, take a look at the full list.

Keep in mind that only certain bugs on the list pay out so be sure to read the rules and specifications if you’re interested in the Xbox Bounty program. Who knows, if you find a certain bug you may hit some big money! Happy hunting!

    Just fix your garbage like State of Decay 2 lol. They obviously don’t understand the phrase “I wouldn’t play it if you paid me”.

Let us know what you think:
