The software giant Microsoft said on Tuesday it is paying a well-known hacking expert more than $100,000 for finding security flaws in its software, news agency STT reported quoting Reuters.

James Forshaw, who heads vulnerability research at London-based security consulting firm Context Information Security, won Microsoft's first $100,000 bounty for identifying a new "exploitation technique" in Windows, which will allow it to develop defenses against an entire class of attacks, said the software maker.

Forshaw has already excelled in identifying security holes. He has received rewards for his work in the past, including from computer maker Hewlett-Packard.
