Investigating and reporting bugs

If you have found a bug, please submit a report through creating a new issue on Credits Github. Note that you are able to submit reports only regarding components of the platform included in “Software in Scope”.

Qualifying Vulnerabilities

  • For all “Software in Scope” there are several degrees of bugs which will have a different amount of rewards.
  • For multiple bugs with one underlying root cause, where one fix can be applied to remediate, we will consider this as one vulnerability and only award once.
  • The only first developer who has found bugs will get a reward
  • Developers are able to submit fixes for found bug using “Pull Request” on Credits Github. In case that developers’ correction will be considered like a viable the amount of reward will be increased in 3 times.

For scenarios that do not fall within one of the above categories, Credits team still appreciates reports that help us to make the platform more secure and stable. In general, developers will be rewarded on the basis of table above. Please note these are general guidelines, and that final reward decisions are up to the discretion Credits technical team.
