While the client could always successfully identify and resolve any security loopholes, Open Bug Bounty Researcher found a security vulnerability affecting the website and its users. They identified XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) and other vulnerabilities and disclosed information related to XSS vulnerability on Open Bug Bounty site.
To get detailed insight into the security gaps identified, the client was looking to partner with a security consulting firm that could look into the gaps and provide a complete vulnerability report. The client also wanted the firm to provide a list of preventive/corrective action items for their infected website.
Synoptek partnered with the client to understand their issues and offered the required Vulnerability Testing Services. Synoptek took the following actions for the Open Bug Bounty issue(s) and vulnerabilities assessment testing activities:
Using Synoptek’s Vulnerability Testing Services and through the implementation of the preventive actions against the identified vulnerabilities, the client has been able to overcome all vulnerabilities, including the one which the Open Bug Bounty researcher had disclosed, successfully.
Since known vulnerabilities have been identified, the client is also able to strengthen its security posture and prevent future attacks.
