Responsible Disclosure

Even though our services are based around finding security bugs in web applications, we are not as naive as to think that our own applications are 100% flawless. We take security issues seriously and will respond swiftly to fix verifiable security issues. If you are the first to report a verifiable security issue, we'll thank you with a place at our hall of fame page.

We encourage anyone to report security issues to disclosure@detectify.com.

Who can participate in the program

Anyone who doesn't work for Detectify or partners of Detectify who reports a unique security issue in scope and does not disclose it to a third party before we have patched and updated may be upon their approval added to the Detectify Hall of Fame.

The domain detectify.com and any subdomain except for these:

  • blog.detectify.com

If you can however prove that a bug under these domains have significant impact (for example fetching content on detectify.com from blog.detectify.com), a bug on these domains may qualify anyway.

  • Cross-site Scripting

  • Denial of service
  • SSL BEAST/CRIME/etc

Other guidelines

So you're actually reading this? Good! First off, please don't perform research that could impact other users. Secondly, please keep the reports short and succinct. If we fail to understand the logics of your bug, we will tell you.
