Microsoft has introduced a new Application Bounty Program that invites researchers to identify vulnerabilities in specific Microsoft apps and share them with Microsoft. Qualified submissions are eligible for bounty rewards from $500 to $30,000 USD.

There is an existing program that covers the Microsoft Teams Service, the Microsoft Online Services Bounty Program. This covers all of Office 365 and Microsoft Accounts.
There are also other specific bounty programs:
It’s nice to see Microsoft expand the scope of these bounty programs to apps. For more information check out the Microsoft blog post, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
