Microsoft has introduced an AI Bounty Program, offering rewards up to $15,000 to security researchers who uncover vulnerabilities in its AI-driven Bing experience. The program aims to boost security and encourage experts to scrutinize Bing's chatbot and its integration with Microsoft products.

Earning Rewards:

  • Researchers globally can earn between $2,000 and $15,000 for valid vulnerability reports.
  • Minors aged 14 and up can participate with parental consent.
  • Government employees can join, with rewards going to their organizations.

Researchers can analyze AI-powered Bing experiences on, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Start (iOS and Android), and Skype (iOS and Android).

Vulnerabilities must be "critical" or "important," reproducible in the latest product version, and have clear steps for replication.
