What we would like to see from you:

  1. You must be the first person to responsibly disclose/report an unknown issue.

  2. Multiple issues should be reported separately.

  3. Well-written reports in English will have a higher chance of resolution.

  4. Reports that include proof-of-concept code equip us to better triage.

  5. Reports that include only crash dumps or other automated tool output may receive lower priority.

  7. Please include how you found the bug, the impact, and any potential remediation.

What you can expect from us:

  1. A timely response to your email (within 7 business days).

  2. After triage, we will send an expected timeline, and commit to being as transparent as possible about the remediation timeline as well as on issues or challenges that may extend it.

  3. An open dialog to discuss issues.

  4. Notification when the vulnerability analysis has completed each stage of our review.
