While no technology is perfect, PullString believes that working with skilled
security researchers across the globe is crucial to identifying and addressing
weaknesses. PullString practices a Responsible Disclosure policy. If you
believe you have found a security issue in our products or service, we
encourage you to notify us. We will work closely with you to resolve the issue
Responsible Disclosure Policy
- Let us know as soon as possible upon discovery of a potential security issue.
- Please include as many technical details as possible so that our security team can reproduce and confirm the issue in question.
- Once a security issue has been confirmed, our goal is to issue an update for the affected product(s) within 60 days. However, please provide us a reasonable amount of time to resolve the issue before any disclosure to the public or a third-party.
- Posting details or conversations about a report before it has been approved for disclosure, especially for high-severity bugs, will result in immediate disqualification from the program.
To show our appreciation of responsible security researchers, PullString
offers a monetary bounty for reports of qualifying security vulnerabilities.
Reward amounts will vary based upon the severity of the reported
vulnerability. Eligibility and award size is at our sole discretion.
- Open to anyone in the security community
- Employees and contractors of PullString are ineligible to claim bounties but may submit bug reports
Qualifying bugs will be rewarded based on severity. Our minimum reward is $100
USD, and our maximum reward is $5,000 USD. Rewards are only granted for new
and previously unidentified vulnerabilities and are granted entirely at the
discretion of PullString.
