Aditi Singh, a 20-year-old ethical hacker from Delhi, has won a reward of $30,000 (about Rs 22 lakh) for spotting a bug in Microsoft’s Azure cloud system. Aditi, who found a similar bug in Facebook just two months ago and won a reward of $7500 (approximately over Rs 5.5 lakh). He said both companies had a Remote Code Execution (RCE) bug, which is relatively new and has not received much attention at present. Through such bugs, hackers can gain access to internal systems and the information they hold.
Aditi told that she had informed Microsoft about the bug three months ago and only after conducting a thorough investigation, Microsoft has now given this reward. He told that two months ago he had also found a bug in Facebook and as a reward he got Rs 5.5 lakh. He said that first the reward for the bug was received from Tik-Tok.
Aditi said that bugs are not easy to detect and ethical hackers have to be on top of their game about new bugs, so that they can report them and still be eligible for their payments. However, she insists on gaining knowledge and learning about ethical hacking first rather than just focusing on earning money.
