Bug Bounty Program

If you have found a bug or a security vulnerability in the ReleaseWire site, SBWire site or a related web sites not managed by a 3rd party, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible. 

We take all submitted bugs seriously and work to investigate them quickly and fix the issue once verified.

To qualify for monetary bounty you must meet our Eligibility requirements listed below and adhere to our Bug Disclosure Policy listed below.

The minimum reward for a verified bug is $25.00 USD. The total amount of the reward is based on several factors such as the severity of the issue. Only one (1) reward will be issued for each bug or security vulnerability.

ReleaseWire will review each bug and security vulnerability report to determine if it qualifies for a reward. All submissions are processed in the order received.
