Bug bounty program

No technology is perfect, and Athento believes that working with skilled security researchers across the globe is crucial in identifying weaknesses in any technology. If you believe you’ve found a security issue in our product or service, we encourage you to notify us. We welcome working with you to resolve the issue promptly.

Current conditions apply to bugs reported from 6th May 2020.

Disclosure Policy

  • Let us know as soon as possible upon the discovery of a potential security issue, and we’ll make every effort to quickly resolve the issue. 
  • Provide us a reasonable amount of time to resolve the issue before any disclosure to the public or a third-party. 
  • Make a good faith effort to avoid privacy violations, destruction of data, and interruption or degradation of our service. Only interact with accounts you own or with the explicit permission of the account holder.
  • After a vulnerability is in scope and confirmed, rewards may take up to 45 days to be received. We will try to do it as fast as possible.
  • Only the first report of a bug will get the reward. If needed, we will report who and when was the bug reported the first time.
  • Please, do not report vulnerabilities of external tools, such as Zendesk, Github, Asana, etc.
  • If you detect a bug that is generic to the app, please, avoid reporting on each form or each URL. Report the generic bug and if, after the fix, you find it in other resources, you can report it separately.
  • Security recommendations will only be rewarded if they are applicable to our case. General recommendations that make no sense for our product or business may not be accepted. Please, avoid too basic recommendations such as “implement 2FA” or “use https”.
  • Please, avoid reporting bugs that you “think” that may exist. Report bugs that you can prove evidence that they exist. If no evidence is given, we will not be able to reward you about it.

  • Denial of service
  • Spamming
  • Social engineering (including phishing) of Athento staff or contractors. 
  • Any physical attempts against Athento property or data centers
  • Avoid reporting CSRF bugs for GET calls, when we use GET, we understand it is ‘safe-mode’, as explained in RFC7231.
  •,, and are excluded for security issues with low impact (CSRF, XSS, etc.). Only report if you discover remote server access, direct access to sensitive data, remote code execution, etc. Anyway WordPress vulnerabilities are excluded from the scope.
