We appreciate your help with disclosing security vulnerabilities and offer a reward to the first person that reports a vulnerability.

Respect other Users and their Privacy

When investigating vulnerabilities, please act in good faith and respect the data privacy of other users as well as the service availability of CodeScene. Many people use CodeScene on a daily basis for their work, and it’s harmful -- and illegal -- to disrupt their usage of CodeScene.

  • Missing Content-Security-Policy header
  • Lack of password prompt in the 'Account Delete' feature

Report a Vulnerability

Please let us know if you believe you have discovered a security vulnerability or have detected an incident. You report such vulnerabilities to Support .

Include a detailed description of the vulnerability, together with steps on how to reproduce it. Please make sure to provide an e-mail address where we can reach you, both for more information as well as for sending your reward.

Rewards for Vulnerability Reports

If you’re the first person to report a valid security vulnerability, you’re eligible for a reward. The rewards involve public credits for your discovery (published on our webpage after your consent), as well as coupons that give you free use of the commercial plans in CodeScene.
