Security Disclosure Policy

At YoungCapital, we consider the security of our systems a top priority. But no matter how much effort we put into system security, there can still be vulnerabilities present. YoungCapital greatly appreciates investigative work into security vulnerabilities carried out by well-intentioned, ethical security researchers. We would like to ask you to help us better protect our clients and our systems. If you discover a vulnerability, we would like to know about it so we can take steps to address it as quickly as possible. This document aims to define a method by which YoungCapital can work with the security research community to improve our online security.

Reporting a vulnerability

E-mail your findings to security@youngcapital.nl. Encrypt your findings using our PGP key to prevent this critical information from falling into the wrong hands.
We strive to resolve all problems as quickly as possible, and we would like to play an active role in the ultimate publication on the problem after it is resolved.

Please do the following:

  • Do not take advantage of the vulnerability or problem you have discovered, for example by downloading more data than necessary to demonstrate the vulnerability or deleting or modifying other people's data.
  • Do not reveal the problem to others until it has been resolved.
  • Do not use attacks on physical security, social engineering, distributed denial of service, spam or applications of third parties.
  • Do provide sufficient information to reproduce the problem, so we will be able to resolve it as quickly as possible. Usually, the IP address or the URL of the affected system and a description of the vulnerability will be sufficient, but complex vulnerabilities may require further explanation.

What we promise:

  • We will respond to your report within 3 business days with our evaluation of the report and an expected resolution date.
  • If you act according to this policy, we will not take any legal action against you in regard to the report.
  • We will handle your report with strict confidentiality, and not pass on your personal details to third parties without your permission.
  • We will keep you informed of the progress towards resolving the problem.
  • In the public information concerning the problem reported, we will give your name as the discoverer of the problem (unless you desire otherwise).

Bug Bounty

As a token of our gratitude for your assistance, we would like to offer a reward to security researchers who take the time and effort to investigate and report security vulnerabilities to us according to this policy. The amount of the reward will be determined based on the severity of the issue and the quality of the report. The minimum reward is €20.

The following security issues are currently not eligible for the bug bounty:

  • Vulnerabilities which are not novel, previously reported and/or already discovered by internal procedures.
  • Reports of non-exploitable vulnerabilities.
  • Volumetric vulnerabilities (i.e. simply overwhelming our service with a high volume of requests).
  • Reports indicating that our services do not fully align with "best practice" are not eligible for the bug bounty.

Feedback

Your input is valued to ensure that this policy is clear, complete and remains relevant. If you wish to provide feedback or suggestions on this policy, please contact our security team: security@youngcapital.nl.
