Niteo Vulnerability Disclosure Policy
Niteo welcomes feedback from security researchers and the general public to help improve our
security. If you believe
you have discovered a vulnerability, privacy issue, exposed data, or other security issues in
any of our assets, we
want to hear from you. This policy outlines steps for reporting vulnerabilities to us, what we
expect, what you can
expect from us.
Systems in Scope
This policy applies to any digital assets owned, operated, or maintained by Niteo.
Out of Scope
- Assets or other equipment not owned by parties participating in this policy.
Vulnerabilities discovered or suspected in out-of-scope systems should be reported to the
appropriate vendor or
When working with us, according to this policy, you can expect us to:
- Respond to your report promptly, and work with you to understand and validate your report;
- Strive to keep you informed about the progress of a vulnerability as it is processed;
- Work to remediate discovered vulnerabilities in a timely manner, within our operational
- Extend Safe Harbor for your vulnerability research that is related to this policy.
In participating in our vulnerability disclosure program in good faith, we ask that you:
- Play by the rules, including following this policy and any other relevant agreements. If
there is any
inconsistency between this policy and any other applicable terms, the terms of this policy
- Report any vulnerability you’ve discovered promptly;
- Avoid violating the privacy of others, disrupting our systems, destroying data, and/or
harming user experience;
- Use only the Official Channels to discuss vulnerability information with us;
- Provide us a reasonable amount of time (at least 90 days from the initial report) to resolve
the issue before
you disclose it publicly;
- Perform testing only on in-scope systems, and respect systems and activities which are
- If a vulnerability provides unintended access to data: Limit the amount of data you access
to the minimum
required for effectively demonstrating a Proof of Concept; and cease testing and submit a
report immediately if
you encounter any user data during testing, such as Personally Identifiable Information
Healthcare Information (PHI), credit card data, or proprietary information;
- You should only interact with test accounts you own or with explicit permission from the
account holder; and
- Do not engage in extortion.
While researching, we'd like to ask you to refrain from:
- Actions where you would cause denial of service.
- Interacting with any account you do not own or have explicit permission from the owner.
- Testing contact and support forms.
Definition of a Vulnerability
Niteo considers a security vulnerability to be a weakness in one of our products or
infrastructure that could allow an attacker to impact the confidentiality, integrity, or
availability of the product or infrastructure.
- Presence or absence of HTTP headers (X-Frame-Options, CSP, nosniff, etc.). These are
considered security best practices and therefore we do not classify them as vulnerabilities.
- Missing security-related attributes on non-sensitive cookies. The absence of
these headers on non-sensitive cookies is not considered a security vulnerability.
- Theoretical security issues with no realistic exploit scenario(s) or attack surfaces, or
issues that would require complex end user interactions to be exploited.
- Any issues regarding domain settings (such as SPF policy, DKIM settings, etc) are not a vulnerability.
- Clickjacking reports against unauthenticated pages and/or static content resources are not a vulnerability.
When conducting vulnerability research, according to this policy, we consider this research
conducted under this
policy to be:
- Authorized concerning any applicable anti-hacking laws, and we will not initiate or support
legal action against
you for accidental, good-faith violations of this policy;
- Authorized concerning any relevant anti-circumvention laws, and we will not bring a claim
against you for
circumvention of technology controls;
- Exempt from restrictions in our Terms of Service (TOS) and/or Acceptable Usage Policy (AUP)
that would interfere
with conducting security research, and we waive those restrictions on a limited basis; and
- Lawful, helpful to the overall security of the Internet, and conducted in good faith.
You are expected, as always, to comply with all applicable laws. If legal action is initiated by
a third party
against you and you have complied with this policy, we will take steps to make it known that
your actions were
conducted in compliance with this policy.
If at any time you have concerns or are uncertain whether your security research is consistent
with this policy,
please submit a report through one of our Official Channels before going any further.
Note that the Safe Harbor applies only to legal claims under the control of the organization
this policy, and that the policy does not bind independent third parties.
