Public Disclosure:

Monash University does not permit public disclosure at this point in time. Exceptions will be made if the Monash University Cyber Risk & Resilience Team believes it is in the best interest of the general public and these will typically be done via CVE publication. In this situation, we would reach out to the researcher to ask if they would like to be acknowledged and named in the CVE record.


For the initial prioritization/rating of findings, this program will use the Bugcrowd Vulnerability Rating Taxonomy. However, it is important to note that in some cases a vulnerability priority will be modified due to its likelihood or impact. In any instance where an issue is downgraded, a full, detailed explanation will be provided to the researcher - along with the opportunity to appeal, and make a case for a higher priority.
