Reporting security issues
If you discover a problem or a vulnerability in our systems, we would appreciate it if you share this information with us (as soon as possible). Serious security errors will be rewarded with a sum of bitcoins (bug bounty) or an honorable mention in the “wall of fame”. The height of the reward depends on the impact of the error but can be up to a maximum of 2 BTC. Rewards are only assigned if you're the first to alert us of a security issue and if this results in a change in the code or configuration. Obviously vulnerabilities should not be made public or exposed to third parties, until sufficient time for resolving the issue has been given. You can find some examples of security errors below.
- Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
- Encryption issues
Issues not to report
Some security errors are not eligible for a reward because they have a low impact on security. The following type of security errors are some examples. Please don't mention such flaws unless a combination of errors can lead to a security issue with a greater impact.
- General error messages regarding application or server errors.
- HTTP 404 en other non HTTP 200 error codes
- Accessibility of public files and folders (like robots.txt)
- CSRF-issues on parts of the site that are available to anonymous visitors
- CSRF-issues without (critical) consequences for users
- Trace HTTP functions that may be active
- SSL attacks like BEAST, BREACH, Renegotiation
- SSL Forward secrecy unused
- Anti-MIME-Sniffing header X-Content-Type-functions
- Missing HTTP security headers
- Presence of HTTPS Mixed Content Scripts / errors
- SPF Record settings
