Welcome to the Castor Vulnerability Disclosure Program. This program exists to
promote the responsible disclosure of security issues you may have found on
any of our assets. Please note that we do not offer monetary awards on this
At Castor, we aim to make medical research faster, better and smarter. To be
able to do this, the security of our systems and the safety of our data are
paramount for our company. We put a lot of effort into securing our websites
and systems, but there is always room for improvement. We look forward to work
with the Hackerone community to find and resolve vulnerabilities that put our
products and clients at risk.
Let us know as soon as possible upon discovery of a potential security issue, and we'll make every effort to quickly resolve the issue.
Provide us a reasonable amount of time to resolve the issue before any disclosure to the public or a third-party.
Make a good faith effort to avoid privacy violations, destruction of data, and interruption or degradation of our service. Only interact with accounts you own or with explicit permission of the account holder.
While researching, we'd like to ask you to refrain from:
Denial of service
Social engineering (including phishing) of Castor EDC staff or contractors
Any physical attempts against Castor EDC property or data centers
When reporting vulnerabilities, please consider (1) attack scenario /
exploitability, and (2) security impact of the bug. The following issues are
considered out of scope:
Clickjacking on pages with no sensitive actions.
Attacks requiring MITM or physical access to a user's device.
Previously known vulnerable libraries without a working Proof of Concept.
Comma Separated Values (CSV) injection without demonstrating a vulnerability.
Missing best practices in SSL/TLS configuration.
Missing best practices on SPF/DKIM configurations.
Host header injection attacks
Hyperlink injection in email contents
Any activity that could lead to the disruption of our service (DoS).
Content spoofing and text injection issues without showing an attack vector/without being able to modify HTML/CSS
Missing session revocation on email- or password reset
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 take steps to make it
known that your actions were conducted in compliance with this policy.
Thank you for helping keep Castor EDC and our users safe!
