Microsoft News Byte: Microsoft Launches Security Bounty Program, Will Pay Up To $100K For Exploits

Microsoft has long resisted this move, but starting June 26 ? the date the Windows 8.1 preview will ship ? it will finally launch its own security bounty program. The company will offer bounties up to $100,000 for "truly novel exploitation techniques" that expose security issues in Windows 8.1 Preview. Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One received a not-so-subtle dig on Jimmy Fallon's Late Night show. Fallon invited Mark Cerny, chief system architect of the Sony PS4, to discuss and demo Sony's upcoming new game console, and Cerny said in comparison to the XBox One: "We support used games. We don't require an Internet connection." According to the software giant, it sold 114,000 Xbox 360 units in the U.S. in May, leading all other console makers. By beating its competitors, Microsoft was able to nab its 29th consecutive month as the leading console seller in the U.S
