Disclosure Policy

The problem is confirmed and a list of all affected versions is determined. Code is audited to find any potential similar problems. Fixes are prepared for all releases which are still under maintenance.
  • A suggested embargo date for this vulnerability is chosen and a CVE is assigned for the vulnerability.
  • On the embargo date a new version of Artillery Pro is made available for download and customers are sent an advisory via email with a description of the vulnerability and its mitigation, along with upgrade instructions. Within 6 hours, a copy of the advisory is published on the official Artillery blog.
  • Typically the embargo date will be set 72 hours from the time the CVE is issued. However, this may vary depending on the severity of the bug or difficulty in applying a fix.
  • This process can take some time, especially when coordination is required with maintainers of other projects. Every effort will be made to handle the bug in as timely a manner as possible and to ensure that the disclosure is handled in a consistent manner.
