Microsoft is once again offering a huge reward for bug hunters as part of their new Office Insider Bug Bounty program.

According to Microsoft, rewards range from $500 to $15,000 (roughly P750,000) for those who find verifiable errors in their Office productivity suite on the Windows desktop.

“For the bounty program, we request you submit bugs on the Office Insider Preview slow ring,” its statement read.

All you have to do is to find a previously unreported security vulnerability on a fully patched Windows 10 Desktop based on the program’s requirements and submit a report to Microsoft so they can reproduce the error.

“If a submission reproduces in a previous Office Insider slow build but not the current Office slow build available at the time of your submission, then the submission is ineligible,”

Microsoft is hoping to stamp out pesky bug errors with this program to improve overall security of their digital products.

But not all bugs are eligible for a bounty. The following are some examples of errors that Microsoft will not reward:
-Vulnerabilities in user-generated content
-Vulnerabilities in components not installed by Office
-Vulnerabilities found by disabling existing security features

This bounty program will run for three months starting on March 15 to June 15, 2017.

Microsoft has also recently doubled its maximum bounty to $30,000 for eligible vulnerability issues found in Microsoft Office 365 Portal and Microsoft Exchange Online that are submitted from March 1 to May 1, 2017.
