Microsoft announced on Friday that it’s offering rewards of up to $15,000 for serious vulnerabilities found in Nano Server.

Nano Server, a new installation option available in Windows Server 2016, is a remotely administered server operating system designed for datacenters and private clouds. Nano Server is small, fast and requires fewer updates and restarts compared to Windows Server.

Microsoft says the product is ideal as a compute host for Hyper-V virtual machines, as a storage host for Scale-Out File Server, as a DNS server, or as a host for cloud apps running in a container or a VM.

The company is prepared to pay between $500 and $15,000 for vulnerabilities found in the Nano Server installation option of Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5 and all subsequent releases.

The bug bounty will be running for a period of three months, until July 29. The goal is to find security holes while the product is still in technical preview in an effort to minimize impact on customers after it becomes generally available.
