Q: Will CoinEx disclose the information related to the vulnerability report?
A: In order to protect users’ interests and privacy, the report-related information will not be made public.
Q: Does the CoinEx Security Bounty use rewards to conceal security issues?
A: No. First of all, CoinEx believes that related information should not be disclosed in order to protect users’ interests and privacy, which is also a common practice in the industry. Secondly, the rewards from CoinEx are to express gratitude and respect to the reporters, instead of concealing security issues.
Q: Will CoinEx “ignore” the vulnerability and then secretly fix it?
A: Absolutely not. Once the “vulnerability” submitted by the reporter enters the “ignored” state, the relative staff will explain the reason in the report feedback. The common situation is that this "vulnerability" is not considered a vulnerability and is evaluated as a BUG, but in any case, CoinEx will not “secretly fix the vulnerability.”
