VeriSign offers you the chance to become a bounty hunter.  They are offering $8,000 per hole reported, in response to Trend Micro researchers finding Vista flaws for sale at $50,000 per on black hat sites.  Make sure you are fast, for VeriSign will only pay out for the first 6 people to report a particular flaw.

"VeriSign's iDefense Labs has placed an $8,000 bounty on remote code execution holes in Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 7.

As part of its its controversial pay-for-flaw VCP (Vulnerability Contributor Program), iDefense said it will pay the reward for

each submitted vulnerability that allows an attacker to remotely exploit and execute arbitrary code on either of the two

Microsoft products. In addition to the $8,000 award for the flaw, iDefense will pay between $2,000 and $4,000 for working

exploit code that exploits the submitted vulnerability."
