Christmas holidays. After the holidays the program will be shut down on BugCrowd.
Good strategy online games are what Forge of Empires stands for. As a chieftain who founds his settlement anno 5000 B.C. in the Stone Age with little more than a few tents, it is your task to show your online strategy game skills and develop your city through the ages of history in this browser based empire game. Prove yourself a worthy ruler and lead your reign to glory!
We have set up an exclusive world on our most-played game
Forge of Empires
to be hacked! Enjoy the daily-deployed game updates constantly introducing new
attack surface, and the free premium in-game currency!
For the initial prioritization/rating of findings, this program will use theBugcrowd Vulnerability Rating Taxonomy. However, it is important to note that in some cases a vulnerability priority will be modified due to its likelihood or impact. In any instance where an issue is downgraded, a full, detailed explanation will be provided to the researcher - along with the opportunity to appeal, and make a case for a higher priority.
For very well-written reports and/or reports that fully describe exploit chains, researchers will receive an additional 10% reward bonus (minimum). Bonus rewards are given at the sole discretion of the InnoGames customer triage team.
Submissions that do NOT include an impact description & proof-of- concept will not be rewarded.
Do not upload any vulnerability-related information to 3rd-party services (e.g. Google, YouTube, Dropbox, or Tinyurl). Try to include all your PoC screenshots/videos as an attachment to your report (up to 50MB), if this is not possible, please leave a note in the report about it and email email@example.com.

We do currently run two versions of the game: one is Flash-based and deprecated and one is based on HTML5. We have enforced the HTML5 version on the in-scope assets and only accept vulnerabilities affecting the HTML5 version. (which is to say the flash version is out-of-scope)
Besides the classic web-based vulnerability classes such as XSS, CSRF, IDOR, SQLi, RCE, we are mostly interested in security vulnerabilities that affect the game's ecosystem in a negative manner, such as:
