I. Vulnerability Disclosure Program


Fidelity looks forward to working with the security community to identify and responsibly disclose vulnerabilities in the domain(s) designated in scope in this Policy in order to keep our business and customers safe. If you have any information about or discover security vulnerabilities that could impact Fidelity or our customers, please submit a report in accordance with this policy (“Policy”). By participating in our Vulnerability Disclosure Program (“Program”) and submitting your findings, you confirm that you meet our Program Eligibility terms and accept and agree to be bound by this Policy.

1. Safe Harbor

Any activities conducted in a manner consistent with this Policy will be considered authorized conduct, and we will not initiate legal action against you. If legal action is initiated by a third party against you in connection with activities conducted under this Policy, we will make it known that your actions were conducted in compliance with this Policy. Fidelity reserves all legal rights in the event of noncompliance with this Policy or applicable law.

2. Program Eligibility

  • You are at least 18 years of age.

  • You are not a resident of, or located in, any country against which the United States has issued sanctions or other trade restrictions and are not a person (or affiliated with a company or organization) designated in the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Specially Designated Nationals List.

  • Follow HackerOne’s Disclosure Guidelines.

  • You may not engage in any security research or vulnerability disclosure activity that is inconsistent with terms and conditions of the Policy or applicable law.

  • You are the first to submit a sufficiently reproducible report for a vulnerability – this is a requirement to be eligible for the report to be accepted and triaged.

  • Submit one vulnerability per report, unless you need to chain vulnerabilities to provide impact.

  • Multiple vulnerabilities caused by one underlying issue will be treated as one valid report.

  • Publicly-known Zero-day vulnerabilities will not be considered until more than 30 days have passed since patch availability.

  • Fidelity employees are not eligible for participation in this Program.

3. Program Rules


  • Perform testing using only accounts that are your own personal/test accounts or an account that you have explicit permission from the account holder to utilize.

  • Exercise caution when testing to avoid negative impact to us and our customers and the services we and they depend on.

  • STOP testing if you are unsure about the impact it may have on our systems. If you think you may cause, or have caused, damage with testing a vulnerability, immediately report your initial finding(s) and request authorization to continue testing.


  • Do not Brute force credentials or guess credentials to gain access to systems.

  • Do not participate in denial of service attacks.

  • Do not upload shells or create a backdoor of any kind.

  • Do not engage in any form of social engineering of Fidelity employees, customers, or vendors.

  • Do not test third party assets, subdomains managed by third parties, or any domains listed as out of scope in this Policy. Please check our publicly published IP ranges and conduct all necessary due diligence to determine ownership of an asset prior to testing.

  • Do not engage or target any Fidelity employee, customer, or vendor during your testing.

  • Do not access, modify, copy, download, delete, compromise or otherwise misuse others’ data or access non-public information without authorization. Do not attempt to extract, download, or otherwise exfiltrate any non-public data other than your own.

  • If you encounter any sensitive data, including personally identifiable information (PII), financial information, or proprietary information, you must stop your test, immediately notify Fidelity, and not disclose this data to anyone else.

  • Do not change passwords of any account that is not yours. If ever prompted to change a password of an account that is nor yours, stop and report the finding immediately.

  • Do not do anything that would be considered a privacy violation, cause destruction of data, or engage in any activity that can potentially or actually interrupt, degrade, or stop our services or assets or that can potentially or actually harm Fidelity, our customers, employees, or vendors.

  • Do not interact with accounts you do not own.

  • Do not send more than 100 requests per second per unique domain.

  • Do not initiate a fraudulent financial transaction.

  • Do not engage in any activity that violates (a) U.S. federal or state laws, regulations, or rules or (b) the laws or regulations of any country where (i) data, assets or systems reside, (ii) data traffic is routed or (iii) the researcher is conducting research activity.

  • Do not mass scan Fidelity domains. Offending IP addresses may be blocked.

  • Do not exploit beyond what is necessary to demonstrate vulnerability presence. You need to show that you could exploit a vulnerability, but you must not actually exploit it.

  • Do not access content of communications, data, or information on Fidelity systems except to the extent that information directly relates to the vulnerability and is necessary to prove the vulnerability exists.

  • Do not discuss the Program or any vulnerabilities you discover outside the Program or share any Report (as defined below) with any third parties without Fidelity’s express written consent. Do not store or share non-public data obtained through testing except to the extent necessary to communicate the finding to the Fidelity.

| ------------- | ------------- |

| First Response | 1 day |

| Time to Triage | 5 days |

2. Test Instructions

We strongly recommend you use a customized user agent header in your HTTP(S) requests, for example:

  • For non-HTTP requests we strongly recommend you add an identification to artifacts in POCs, and, or payloads so our teams can identify you as a verified hacker and not a malicious attacker: h1:<vdp-hackeroneusername>. If you forget to tag your traffic, please list your IP in the submission form.
