ClassDojo Security Vulnerability Disclosure Program
ClassDojo is committed to protecting the privacy and security of our members, users of our software tools, and visitors to ClassDojo sites. Our Vulnerability Disclosure Program is intended to minimize the impact any security flaws have on our tools, our hosted services, or their users. ClassDojo's Vulnerability Disclosure Program covers two types of software: select software partially or primarily written by ClassDojo, and publicly facing software and systems ClassDojo makes use of for its websites and other Internet services.
In addition to the software and systems described below, ClassDojo's Vulnerability Disclosure Program applies to security vulnerabilities discovered in any of the following software:
- ClassDojo iOS app
- ClassDojo Android app
In order to qualify, the vulnerability must exist in the latest public release (including officially released public betas) of the software. Only security vulnerabilities will qualify. We would love it if people reported other bugs via the appropriate channels, but since the purpose of this program is to fix security vulnerabilities, only bugs that lead to security vulnerabilities will be eligible for rewards.
In addition to the software described above, ClassDojo's Vulnerability Disclosure Program applies to security vulnerabilities discovered in any web services or other public facing software running on any of the following domains:
- classdojo.com and all subdomains (*.classdojo.com)
These are the vulnerabilities we are looking for:
- Cross-site request forgery (CSRF/XSRF)
- Cross-site scripting (XSS)
- Authentication bypass
- Remote code execution
- SQL Injection
- Privilege escalation
Bugs not listed will be accepted at our discretion. Vulnerabilities in server software such as Haproxy or Wordpress, are in scope, if the vulnerability has already been publicly reported, and a patch or software update for the vulnerability has been available from the software's maintainers for at least 5 days. In order to qualify, the vulnerability must exist in software or a service that is actively running on ClassDojo's servers at the time the vulnerability is disclosed. (In other words, you won't get a reward just for telling us about the latest CVE, unless we've neglected to patch it/update our software 5 days after a fix has been released.) Security vulnerabilities created by the specific configuration of software on ClassDojo servers are also in scope under this program. Vulnerabilities that require physical access to server hardware are ineligible for submission.
Please adhere to the following guidelines in order to be eligible for rewards under this disclosure program:
- Do not permanently modify or delete ClassDojo-hosted data.
- Do not intentionally access non-public ClassDojo data any more than is necessary to demonstrate the vulnerability.
- Do not DDoS or otherwise disrupt, interrupt or degrade our internal or external services.
- Do not share confidential information obtained from ClassDojo, including but not limited to member or donor payment information, with any third party.
- Social engineering is out of scope. Do not send phishing emails to, or use other social engineering techniques against, anyone, including ClassDojo staff, members, vendors, or partners.
- In addition, please allow ClassDojo at least 90 days to fix the vulnerability before publicly discussing or blogging about it. ClassDojo believes that security researchers have a First Amendment right to report their research and that disclosure is highly beneficial, and understands that it is a highly subjective question of when and how to hold back details to mitigate the risk that vulnerability information will be misused. If you believe that earlier disclosure is necessary, please let us know so that we can begin a conversation.
Just as important as discovering security flaws is reporting the findings so that users can protect themselves and vendors can repair their products. Public disclosure of security information enables informed consumer choice and inspires vendors to be truthful about flaws, repair vulnerabilities and build more secure products. Disclosure and peer review advances the state of the art in security. Researchers can figure out where new technologies need to be developed, and the information can help policymakers understand where problems tend to occur.
On the other hand, vulnerability information can give attackers who were not otherwise sophisticated enough to find the problem on their own the very information they need to exploit a security hole in a computer or system and cause harm. Therefore we ask that you privately report the vulnerability to ClassDojo before public disclosure.
Send an email to email@example.com with information about the vulnerability and detailed steps on how to replicate it. Submissions that include detailed information on how to fix the corresponding vulnerability are more likely to receive more valuable rewards.
We are happy to accept anonymous vulnerability reports, but of course we can't send you our thanks if you report a vulnerability anonymously.
We will make every effort to respond to valid reports within seven business days.
The validity of a vulnerability will be judged at the sole discretion of ClassDojo.
Not all reported issues may qualify for a reward. Rewards are awarded at ClassDojo's sole discretion.
Only the first report we receive about a given vulnerability will be rewarded. We cannot send rewards where prohibited by law (i.e. North Korea, Cuba, etc.).
If you have any questions about our vulnerability disclosure policy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks to EFF.org for creating the framework of this Security Disclosure Program.
