We aim to fix reported vulnerabilities or bugs within 60 days. If the vulnerability is found in a third-party component, we will contact the responsible parties to arrange for its remediation. The following rules apply for reporting vulnerabilities and bugs:

We do not pay premiums for reported vulnerabilities.

Vulnerabilities may only be published in agreement with usd AG.

Do not violate applicable law and do not damage or compromise any data of usd and/or its customers or exploit any confirmed vulnerabilities.

To help us process vulnerability reports as quickly as possible, please ensure that you explain the steps required to reproduce the vulnerability in detail.
