We rapidly investigate all reported security issues. If you believe you’ve discovered a bug in BlockFi’s security, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org (preferably using this encryption).
To the extent your report relates to a vulnerability that is not commercially immaterial, we will respond as quickly as possible to your report. We request that you not publicly disclose the issue until it has been addressed by BlockFi.
Vulnerability Reward Program
We understand the hard work that goes into security research. To show our appreciation for researchers who help us keep our users safe, we operate a reward program for responsibly disclosed vulnerabilities. BlockFi rewards the confidential disclosure of any design or implementation issue that could be used to compromise the confidentiality or integrity of our users’ data (such as by bypassing our login process, injecting code into another user’s session, or instigating action on another user’s behalf). A reward of $500 USD may be provided for the disclosure of qualifying bugs. At our discretion, we may increase the reward amount based on the creativity or severity of the bugs.
If you report a vulnerability that does not qualify under the above criteria, we may still provide a minimum reward if your report causes us to take specific action to improve BlockFi’s security.
As with most security reward programs, we ask that you use common sense when looking for security bugs. Vulnerabilities must be disclosed to us privately with reasonable time to respond, and avoid compromise of other users and accounts, or loss of funds, which are not your own. We do not reward denial of service, spam, or social engineering vulnerabilities. Although BlockFi itself and all services offered by BlockFi are eligible, vulnerabilities in third-party applications which use BlockFi are not.
And finally, as with most security reward programs, we have a couple of restrictions. We will only reward the first person to responsibly disclose a bug to us. Any bugs that are publicly disclosed without providing us a reasonable time to respond will not be rewarded. Whether to reward the disclosure of a bug and the amount of the reward is entirely at our discretion, and we may cancel the program at any time. Your testing must not violate any laws. We can’t provide you a reward if it would be illegal for us to do so, such as to residents of countries under current U.S. sanctions.
Thank you for helping keep BlockFi, our users, and their customers safe!
