Most of the $100,000 Microsoft bounty will go to winner’s company, tax collectors

The $100,000 that James Forshaw won as a bounty from Microsoft for helping him find a major bug won’t go to him, at least not very much of it.

James Forshaw, a British security researcher, was paid a $100,000 bounty by Microsoft for finding a major security flaw within Windows 8.1.

The bounty for finding such a crucial flaw was $100,000, “probably one of the biggest made available,” explained Forshaw. Unfortunately he’s barely going to get any of it.
