PAX Vulnerability Disclosure Program

PAX has formalized a process for handling reported security vulnerabilities, intended to give security researchers terms and conditions for conducting vulnerability discovery activities directed at publicly accessible related department at PAX, including any product, system, or asset belonging discovered vulnerabilities.

Reporters shall be aware that you cannot compromise the privacy or safety of our customers and the operation of our services. Such activity will be treated as illegal. We support acts taken in good faith to discover and report vulnerabilities and commit to working with you to understand, confirm, and appropriately solve the vulnerability.

During the whole process, PAX will strictly control the scope of information distribution. PAX will request the reporting party keep the vulnerability confidential until PAX completes the fix and bulletin.

During this time, regular communication is maintained between PAX and the reporting party to inform about the current status.
If available, pre-releases of software fixes may be provided to the reporting party for verification.

Disclosure
