Security Updates

Back to the Changelog

As part of our dedication to providing a secure platform for our customers, we operate a Bug Bounty programme to encourage responsible disclosure of potential issues.

With all disclosures we evaluate their severity in terms of their direct impact, the nature of the issue and overall risk.

We have received a number of reports recently that we have been evaluating. Whilst none of the recent disclosures has been deemed high severity, we have applied a number of updates to the platform.

These include:

  • Tougher rate limiting on routes that manage user information including email addresses
  • Better handling of the password-reset flow to prevent stale links being reused
  • Avoiding disclosure of a user's email address to other members of a team

This last item is one I wanted to say a bit more about. As you would expect, a user's email address is sensitive information that we do not disclose to unauthorised users. However, we also consider a Team as having a higher level of trust between its members. On review, we have decided there is not a technical reason for this higher level of trust to include a member's email address, so we have removed it from the relevant API responses.

We value the effort people put into making responsible disclosures to us and look to reward the work where it meets our criteria.
