Bug Bounty Program

At Kentico, we are committed to delivering secure products. While our internal security team works hard to identify vulnerabilities before reaching production, we recognize the value of external expertise. We invite skilled security researchers and pentesters to participate in our private bug bounty program. By joining forces, we can collectively improve the security of our software and protect our users.

By submitting reports or otherwise participating in this program, you agree that you have read and will abide by the program rules and legal terms, which are listed below.

Program Rules

Violation of any of these rules may result in ineligibility for a bounty and disqualification from the bug bounty program. 

  1. Any illegal activity is prohibited. Only test vulnerabilities on accounts that you own or that the account owner has authorized you to test. 
  2. Never use a finding to compromise/exfiltrate/modify/destroy data or to pivot to other systems. Use a proof-of-concept only to demonstrate an issue.
  3. Researchers are not authorized to and must not engage in any activity that would be disruptive, damaging, or harmful to Kentico, its brands, or its users. This includes social engineering, unsolicited messages, phishing, physical security, and any type of denial-of-service attacks, especially automated tools, against users, employees, or Kentico as a whole.
  4. Testing of third-party websites, applications, or services integrated into in-scope products is not allowed.
  5. Excessive or repetitive submissions, messages, or requests without valid cause are prohibited. We will always get back to you once we finish the triage of the issue.
  6. Use of offensive, degrading, or inappropriate language will result in immediate disqualification from this program. Please keep the communication civil.
  7. Contacting Kentico through means other than those specified below regarding the bounty program (pre-validating reports, testing, requesting updates, etc.) is not allowed.


Please make sure your findings are within the current scope of our bug bounty program before reporting. Reports that are out of scope will not be eligible for a cash reward. For the tested application, use the latest released version available.

Responsible disclosure

Researchers may not publicly disclose vulnerabilities (share details with anyone other than authorized Kentico employees) or otherwise share vulnerabilities with third parties without explicit written permission from Kentico. This gives us enough time to properly address issues before the report is made public.


Kentico employees (including former employees who have separated from Kentico within the last 12 months), contingent workers, contractors (including their staff), consultants, and their immediate family members/people living in the same household are not eligible to receive bounties or rewards of any kind under the Kentico Bug Bounty Program.

Legal Terms

In connection with your participation in this program, you agree to comply with the Kentico Privacy Policy and all applicable laws and regulations, including any laws or regulations governing privacy or the lawful processing of data. 

Kentico reserves the right to change or modify the terms and conditions of this program at any time.

Safe Harbor

Kentico will not initiate a lawsuit or law enforcement investigation against a researcher in response to reporting a vulnerability if the researcher fully complies with the Bug Bounty Program Policy.

Reporting Guidelines

If you believe you've found a security vulnerability within the scope of the bug bounty program, we encourage you to let us know immediately using the form below or by sending a report to our email bugbounty@kentico.com (optionally using our PGP key). We ask that you keep the issue private until we have a chance to address it. We won't pursue legal action as long as you make a good faith effort to avoid privacy violations and destructive exploitation of the vulnerability.

Please include the following information in your report

  • A detailed and step-by-step proof of concept (PoC) demonstrating your findings so we can verify their validity. We won't process any reports without PoC. If we don't have enough information to reproduce the problem, the validation process will be slowed down.
  • Impact of the vulnerability
  • Use screenshots or screen captures in your report. The more information we have, the faster we can get back to you.
  • Please do not submit reports from automated tools.
