Bug Bounty Overview
Last Updated September 07, 2023
Welcome to the DeVol Bug Bounty Program (the "Program"), where security takes center stage. With a relentless commitment to safeguarding the security, integrity, availability, and privacy of our services, we actively anticipate and counter evolving threats. We understand that the realm of security is ever-changing, and we collaborate closely with independent researchers while staying informed about the latest advancements. Embracing a proactive approach, we highly value user and community input, reserving funds to support our dedicated Program.
NOTE: Any DeVol Network domain/property not listed in the Target in scope section is out of scope, this includes any/all subdomains not listed above.
To participate in the Program, follow these steps to access the DeVol Platform:
Account Access: Log in to the DeVol Platform service using your registered account credentials.
Communication: All correspondence will be directed to the email address linked with your account. Make sure to monitor this email inbox regularly.
Important Note: If you discover a vulnerability, promptly file a submission. Our dedicated security team will initiate an investigation to evaluate the potential impact of the vulnerability.
- User Data/ User Information Leaks
- Smart Contract Exploits (Solana)
- Injection attacks (Server/Client side)
- RCE (Remote Code Execution)
- Privilege escalation (Vertical/Horizontal)
We welcome your contribution to enhancing the security of the Production/Dev DeVol Platform environments. To maintain a collaborative and secure testing environment, we kindly request that you refrain from the following actions:
- Prior Authorization for Automated Scans: Avoid initiating automated scans without obtaining explicit approval from us first. If you intend to use automated testing tools, ensure your requests remain well below the threshold of 75-100 requests per second. Exceeding this limit may lead to unintended lockouts.
- Exploit Usage Guidelines: Refrain from deploying full-fledged exploits that may result in application crashes or compromise the stability of our active services. Should you discover a severe exploit that requires immediate attention, please contact us at [email protected]. We'll provide you with a duplicate instance of the affected service for validation.
- Exclusion of Social Engineering Techniques: Do not employ social engineering methods such as phishing or vishing during testing.
- Testing Against Customer Accounts: Testing against any form of customer account is strictly prohibited without explicit permission granted by our team.
- Preservation of Customer Assets: Under no circumstances should you access, damage, or negatively impact residential or business customers, including any associated customer data.
- Avoid DoS or DDoS Attacks: We strongly discourage the execution of Denial of Service (DoS) or Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Application-level, network-level DoS/DDoS, or port flooding attacks can adversely affect service delivery to our users and are not within the scope of appreciated testing methodologies.
- Physical Security Evaluation: Do not attempt to evaluate the physical security of DeVol offices, employees, equipment, or related assets.
- Prohibition of User Attack: It is strictly forbidden to target or compromise our end users or engage in the trade of stolen user credentials.
- Non-Interaction with Real Customers: Refrain from any form of interaction with real customers or their accounts during testing.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in ensuring the smooth progress of our Program while upholding the security and integrity of our services.
We greatly value the integrity of our internal processes and workflows. Our dedicated security team is committed to continuous testing and vigilance, so when submitting your reports, please adhere to the following guidelines. Failure to do so may result in disqualification from our Program Bounty. If you come across a Severe or Critical Vulnerability, we request that you encrypt your emails.
- Confidentiality and Communication: Refrain from discussing or disclosing Vulnerabilities on social media or through blog posts, either before or after reporting. Any such actions may lead to potential legal consequences.
- Limited Communication: Limit your discussions to DeVol's technical staff only. Please avoid sharing information about identified Vulnerabilities with others.
- Report Format: When possible, avoid sharing direct links, executables, or scripts in your report. Instead, attach a text file or PDF outlining your findings.
- Media Formats: Screenshots should be submitted in PNG, BMP, or TIFF formats, while Proof of Concept (POC) videos are accepted in MP4, AVI, WEBM, and MOV formats. These limitations are in place for internal security reasons.
Your adherence to these reporting rules contributes to a streamlined and secure Program operation. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we collectively work to enhance the security of our services.
Effective communication of Vulnerabilities ensures swift and accurate assessment. When submitting your reports, please use the following structured format:
- Summary: Begin with a concise overview of the Vulnerability. For instance: "Hello, I have identified an 'x' issue on your server."
- Vulnerability Details: Elaborate on the nature of the bug or Vulnerability, and provide the URL or location where the Vulnerability can be observed. For instance: "The Vulnerability stems from unfiltered characters in the URL [/search.php?q=], specifically on the path /search.php within the 'q' parameter."
- Recreation: Provide step-by-step replication instructions or a proof of concept to help us recreate the issue. For instance: "To reproduce, follow these steps which our team can use:..."
- Additional Information: Include relevant details such as Request and Response dumps, trace dumps, or HTTP requests that could aid in better understanding and validation.
- Attachments (Recommended): Whenever possible, attach supporting materials such as proof-of-concept scripts, screenshots, or screen recordings to enhance clarity.
Your adherence to this structured reporting format greatly assists our security team in efficiently identifying, understanding, and addressing reported Vulnerabilities. Thank you for your commitment to helping us maintain a secure platform.
