Responsible Disclosure of Security Vulnerabilities
We’re working with the security community to make buycpanel.com safe for everyone.
Reporting security issues
If you’ve discovered a security vulnerability, we appreciate your help in disclosing it to us in a responsible manner.
We’ll work with you to make sure that we understand the scope of the issue, and that we fully address your concern. If you believe you have discovered a vulnerability or have a security incident to report, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include a detailed summary of the issue you discovered. Be sure to include an email address where we can reach you in case we need more information. Here are some good things to include:
What is the attack scenario?
What is the step-by-step exploit process?
What is the security impact?
Code of Conduct
Please act in good faith towards our users’ privacy and data during your disclosure. When testing for vulnerabilities, please do not insert test code into popular public guides or threads.
These guides are used by thousands of people daily, and disrupting their experience by testing for vulnerabilities is harmful.
We won’t take legal or administrative action against you or your account if you act accordingly: White hat researchers are always appreciated.

* Banner grabbing issues to figure out the stack we use or software version disclosure
* Open ports without a vulnerability
* Password and account recovery policies, such as reset link expiration or password complexity
* Invalid or missing SPF (Sender Policy Framework) records
* Disclosure of known public files or directories, (e.g. robots.txt)
* Reports of spam
* User enumeration
* DNS misconfiguration
* Presence of autocomplete attribute on web forms
* DNSSEC settings
* HSTS or CSP headers
* Host header injection unless you can show how a third-party can exploit it.
* Vulnerabilities that require a rooted, jailbroken or software emulated device
* Outdated versions of WordPress with no known vulnerabilities
* Missing DNS SPF records
Our security team will assess each bug to determine if it qualifies. We do our best to respond to your reports in a timely manner. We aim to respond within 3 business days, however some reports take longer than others to investigate.
We reply only during business hours (9AM-5PM PST, weekdays, excluding holidays). Repeated emails will NOT result in a quicker response, and may bump your report to the end of the queue.
* Avoid security scanners or tools which may cause DoS, DDoS or scraping-like behavior.
* Do not use automatic tools against contact or support forms
* Do not comment on the blog while testing
* NEVER try to gain access to real user’s account or data.
* You must not leak, manipulate, or destroy any user data.
* Do not impact users with your testing
* Do not perform denial of service attacks, mail bombing, spam, scraping, brute force, or automated attacks with programs like Burp Intruder.
* Do not attempt non-technical attacks such as social engineering, phishing, or physical attacks against our employees, users, or infrastructure.
* Any vulnerability found must be reported no later than 48 hours after discovery.
