Disclosure Program Guidelines

Failure to follow the Disclosure Program Guidelines below will result in your immediate disqualification from the Program and ineligibility for receiving any reward payments.

  • Do not engage in any testing that (i) results in a degradation or disruption of Deskera’s systems, (ii) results in an alteration or deletion of any information in Deskera’s systems, (ii) results in you, or any third party, accessing, storing, sharing, compromising or destroying Deskera’s data or Deskera’s users’ data, or (iii) results in any disruptive or destructive impact on Deskera’s systems, such as but not limited to, denial of service, social engineering, spam, brute force, or third party hacking/scanner applications to target websites.
  • Do not engage in automatic testing.
  • Follow the Report Process. Contacting our sales or support team (,, or will result in an immediate disqualification for a reward for that Report.
  • Follow the Vulnerability Disclosure Process and keep confidential any information about discovered vulnerabilities.

Report Process

Please submit your Report via email to Prefix the subject of your email with [Deskera Responsible Disclosure Reward Program]. In your Report, please include the following information:

  1. Description of the location and potential impact of the vulnerability.
  2. Detailed description of the steps required to reproduce the vulnerability. Proof of concept (POC) scripts, screenshots, and screen captures are all helpful. Please use extreme care to properly label and protect any exploit code.
  3. Any other technical information and related materials we would need to reproduce the issue.
  4. Any potential remediation.

Vulnerability Disclosure Process

Prior to the resolution of vulnerabilities in the Report, the Report will remain non-public to allow the Security Team sufficient time to remediate the vulnerability. The Security Team will make effort in good faith to resolve the vulnerability in the Report in a prompt and transparent manner. Deskera reserves the right to not publicly disclose the Report if Deskera does not find the Report credible or high risk, and decides not to remediate the vulnerability. Deskera also reserves the right to reject, redirect or prioritise any Reports at any point in time. After resolution of vulnerabilities in the Report, public disclosure may be requested by either the Security Team or you and the Report may be disclosed based on mutual agreement and on a coordinated disclosure basis (respective public disclosures to be posted simultaneously).

Disclosure of the Report may also be made subject to the terms below:

  • If the Security Team has evidence of active exploitation or imminent public harm, the Security Team may immediately provide remediation details to the public so that users can take protective action.
  • Due to complexity and other factors, some vulnerabilities will require longer than the default 30 days to remediate. In these cases, the Report may remain non-public to ensure the Security Team has an adequate amount of time to address a security issue. The Security Team will remain in open communication with you when these cases occur.
  • If any law requires disclosure of any content of the Report to the public, Deskera’s customers or the regulator (e.g. Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act 2012), the Security Team may immediately disclose the Report.

Disclosure Rewards

You will be eligible for a reward if: (i) you are the first person to submit the vulnerability; (ii) that vulnerability is verifiable, replicable, and determined to be a valid security issue by the Security Team; and (iii) you have complied with all the Program’s Terms and Conditions. Deskera determines the amount of the reward, based on the following:

  • The caution taken in your investigation;
  • The quality of your Report; and
  • The amount of potential damages prevented as a result of your Report.

All reward decisions are up to the discretion of Deskera and are final. Deskera will review Reports of duplicate vulnerabilities to see if they provide additional information and reward accordingly, but otherwise only reward the first reporter if there is any ambiguity. In case of any ambiguity, (in issues such as whether multiple faults constitute a single bug, or who is the first report etc.), Deskera shall have the discretion to decide what is the course of action and its decisions may not be contested by you. Deskera will inform you if you are eligible for the reward. The format and timing of the reward payment shall be determined by Deskera. The reward payment will be made in Singapore Dollars (SGD). You will be responsible for the payment of any taxes associated with the reward received. Deskera may require your personal particulars before payment of the reward.
