Security bug bounty program
at Piwik PRO

Security is an important part of Piwik PRO’s DNA. That’s why we’re offering a bounty for security researchers who find and report directly to us any major vulnerability in our platform: Piwik PRO Analytics Suite.

Program rules

To be eligible for a reward under this program, you must meet the following conditions:

  • Perform audit tests using our Sandbox infrastructure – you can create a free account using the form below.
  • Do not test our production – Core plan environment on *
  • Keep in mind that any bugs not related to the Piwik PRO Analytics Suite platform (such as those concerning the website) fall outside the scope of the bug bounty program.
  • Please provide detailed reports with reproducible steps. If the report is not detailed enough to reproduce the issue, the issue will not be qualified. See detailed instructions on how to report a bug.
  • Do not publicly disclose any details of the vulnerability, an indicator of vulnerability, or the content of the information rendered available by the vulnerability without explicit written authorization from Piwik PRO.
  • Detect vulnerabilities in a way that doesn’t result in privacy violations, destruction of data, and interruption or degradation of our service.
  • Anonymize all sensitive data gathered during an attack. Ensure you secure and delete it after reporting.
  • The vulnerability you report must be new to us.
  • If you report multiple vulnerabilities caused by one underlying issue, we will treat it as a single valid report.

If any of the above requirements are not fulfilled – your report will be rejected.

Forbidden operations

Please refrain from engaging in the following practices:

  • Using automated tools for huge scans – Tests performed for the purpose of security research can’t have a negative impact on our infrastructure and platform. This kind of test might be treated as a DOS attack, and we may take action to block this type of traffic and prevent the situation from recurring.
  • Sharing information about vulnerabilities with people not authorized by Piwik PRO.
  • Performing actions that may negatively affect the Piwik PRO company or the platform (for example, SPAM).
  • Any physical attack on IT infrastructure and/or company personnel.
  • Social engineering – such as phishing, fishing, or smishing on Piwik PRO staff and users.
  • Exfiltrating data – Tests should be performed on the minimum amount of data necessary to confirm the vulnerability.
  • Violating any applicable laws or agreements to discover vulnerabilities.

  • Bugs not related to our platform, Piwik PRO Analytics Suite, on the Core plan infrastructure (for example, bugs concerning the website).
