Default Limited-time bounty program by Microsoft

Today, Microsoft is announcing the launch of a limited-time bounty program for speculative execution side channel vulnerabilities.

My understanding is this: Microsoft's team is still looking for ways to fight this new menaces which are shaking the whole computer programming since a while.

Microsoft has terminated many jobs and now they realize they lack talents to fight these new menaces.

Hence this announcement.

Any volunteer?
