Kistler Group Vulnerability Disclosure Policy

Kistler Group welcomes feedback from security researchers and the general public to help improve our security. If you believe you have discovered a vulnerability, privacy issue, exposed data, or other security issues in any of our assets, we want to hear from you. This policy outlines steps for reporting vulnerabilities to us, what we expect, what you can expect from us.

Systems in Scope

This policy applies to

  • All products of the Kistler Group
  • All internet-facing systems of the Kistler Group
  • We do not consider the pure absence of a security feature a security vulnerability.
  • We are not interested in findings which are commonly generated by automated scanners such as missing HTTP headers, TLS configurations, Cookie flags, Clickjacking, etc., except if you can use them to create a meaningful PoC exploit.

Out of Scope

General Out of Scope items

  • Denial of Service Attacks
  • Social Engineering
  • Phishing
  • Physical access to Kistler facilities or to facilities of Kistler partners
  • Assets or other equipment not owned by parties participating in this policy

Vulnerabilities discovered or suspected in out-of-scope systems should be reported to the appropriate vendor or applicable authority.

Special Scope items

  • www.kistler.com : Main Website, based on Typo3, we are only interested in critical vulnerabilities such as Remote Code Execution (RCE)

Our Commitments

When working with us, according to this policy, you can expect us to:

  • Respond to your report promptly, and work with you to understand and validate your report;
  • Strive to keep you informed about the progress of a vulnerability as it is processed;
  • Work to remediate discovered vulnerabilities in a timely manner, within our operational constraints; and
  • Extend Safe Harbor for your vulnerability research that is related to this policy.

Our Expectations

In participating in our vulnerability disclosure program in good faith, we ask that you:

  • Play by the rules, including following this policy and any other relevant agreements. If there is any inconsistency between this policy and any other applicable terms, the terms of this policy will prevail;
  • Report any vulnerability you’ve discovered promptly;
  • Avoid violating the privacy of others, disrupting our systems, destroying data, and/or harming user experience;
  • Use only the Official Channels to discuss vulnerability information with us;
  • Perform testing only on in-scope systems, and respect systems and activities which are out-of-scope;
  • If a vulnerability provides unintended access to data: Limit the amount of data you access to the minimum required for effectively demonstrating a Proof of Concept; and cease testing and submit a report immediately if you encounter any user data during testing, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Personal Healthcare Information (PHI), credit card data, or proprietary information;
  • You should only interact with test accounts you own or with explicit permission from the account holder; and
  • Do not engage in extortion.

Disclosure policy

Coordinated Disclosure: Vulnerability details may be shared with third parties after the vulnerability has been fixed and the Program Owner has provided permission to disclose.

Official Channels

Please use our official channels to report security issues, providing all relevant information. The more details you provide, the easier it will be for us to triage and fix the issue.
