Responsible vulnerability disclosure process

Tencent Blade Team will find security vulnerabilities in many vendors, open source software or devices during research process. We will report security vulnerabilities to vendors as soon as possible and actively help them in fixing these vulnerabilities.

When the vulnerability security patch is released, we may disclose more details about the vulnerability. We will retain the right to disclose the details of the vulnerability if we have not received any substantive response 90 days after the vendor first reported the vulnerability or if the vendor has not fixed the vulnerability. Before the details of the vulnerability are publicly disclosed, we may provide details to Tencent’s product team to help Tencent establish proactive protection measures to protect our users.
