Once we confirm and triage the issue, we'll come up with a plan and let you know our expected timeline. We try to respond to issues within a few hours. Some issues, of course, might take longer.

We take security seriously, and we will make an effort to respond as fast as possible.

We will start working on reproducing the issue and will contact you if we need additional information to help us do so. We don't require require a proof of concept exploit or any proof of exploitability, but any information you can share up front is helpful.

Public Disclosure

While we evaluate and fix the issue, we respectfully ask that you hold off on publicly announcing any details until we can roll out a patch.

Depending on the severity of the issue, we usually wait 10 business days before contacting our stakeholders about the vulnerability in order to give all involved parties the opportunity to patch.

Bounties and Rewards

While we appreciate your help in disclosing potential issues in a responsible manner, at this time we don’t offer cash prizes or rewards.
