MS 2018 Q4 – Top 5 Bounty Hunter for 2 RCEs in SharePoint Online

I was amongst top 5 bounty hunters in MS Q4 2018: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msrc/2018/07/26/recognizing-q4-top-5-bounty-hunters/

Although I am not doing active bug bounty hunting at the moment, this was a great experience. I got this prize because of reporting two RCEs in SharePoint Online.

One of the RCEs was patched in MS July 2018 patch (CVE-2018-8284) and this was an interesting screenshot:

I did not get any prize for CVE-2018-8300 which was another RCE in SharePoint using the resource files (the issue was similar to a bug reported in another MS project that I was part of its paid engagement).
