Responsible Disclosure

Security isn’t easy, and we all know it. That’s why we’re running a responsible disclosure program.

Guidelines

If you discover a vulnerability, we would like to know about it so we can take steps to address it as quickly as possible. We would like to ask you to help us better protect our clients and our systems.

Please do the following:

  • Email your findings to security(at)internetwache(dot)org.

  • Do not take advantage of the vulnerability or problem you have discovered.

  • Do not reveal the problem to others until it has been resolved.

  • Do not use attacks on physical security, social engineering, distributed denial of service, spam or applications of third parties.

  • Do not use any automated scanning tools.

  • Do provide sufficient information to reproduce the problem, so we will be able to resolve it as quickly as possible. Usually, the URL of the affected system and a description of the vulnerability will be sufficient, but complex vulnerabilities may require further explanation.

  • Do not run any tests or attacks against our the server infrastucture. The website lies on a shared hosting service. We’re more interested in security issues in our websites.

What we promise:

  • We will respond to your report within 3 business days otherwise feel free to ping us via twitter.

  • If you have followed the instructions above, we will not take any legal action against you in regard to the report.

  • We will handle your report with strict confidentiality, and not pass on your personal details to third parties without your permission.

  • We will keep you informed of the progress towards resolving the problem. If you think that we forgot about your issue, feel free to contact us again.
