Flamingo Bug Bounty Program

The Bug Bounty program focusses on Flamingo’s smart contracts, website, and app.
A bug bounty program is a deal offered by many websites, organizations and software developers by which individuals can receive recognition and compensation for reporting bugs and vulnerabilities, especially those pertaining to security.
The Flamingo Bug Bounty Program focusses on Flamingo’s smart contracts, website, and app, and aims to prevent:
  • Thefts and freezing of unclaimed yield of any amount (including frontend code injection attacks)
  • Thefts and freezing of principal of any amount (including frontend code injection attacks)
  • Website crashes
  • Access to admin accounts without authorization (Cloudflare accounts, service management cloud software, e-mails, etc.)
  • Smart contract hacks that lead to users losing funds
  • Smart contract hacks that lead to smart contracts malfunctioning
  • Smart contract exploits in general

Rewards by threat level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System. This is a simplified 5-level scale, with separate scales for websites/apps and smart contracts/blockchains, encompassing everything from consequence of exploitation to privilege required to likelihood of a successful exploit.
All web/app bug reports must come with a PoC with an end-effect impacting an asset-in-scope in order to be considered for a reward. All High and Critical Smart Contract bug reports require a PoC to be eligible for a reward. Explanations and statements are not accepted as PoC and code is required.
Critical smart contract vulnerabilities are capped at 10% of economic damage, primarily taking into consideration funds at risk, but also PR and branding aspects, at the discretion of the team. However, there is a minimum reward of $50,000 USD.
Payouts are handled by the Flamingo Finance team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in GAS.
Bug bounty rewards are as follows:

Smart Contracts and Blockchain Rewards

  • Critical: Up to $1,000,000 USD
  • High: $40,000 USD
  • Medium: $4,000 USD
  • Low: $1,000 USD

Websites and Applications Rewards

  • Critical: $25,000 USD
  • High: $10,000 USD
  • Medium: $1,000 USD

Scope

All web and/or app bug reports must come with a Proof of Concept (PoC) with an end-effect impacting an asset-in-scope in order to be considered for a reward. All High and Critical Smart Contract bug reports require a PoC to be eligible for a reward. Explanations and statements are not accepted as PoC and code is required.
Critical smart contract vulnerabilities are capped at 10% of economic damage, primarily taking into consideration funds at risk, but also PR and branding aspects, at the discretion of the team. However, there is a minimum reward of $50,000 USD.
All payouts are handled by the Flamingo Finance team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are paid in GAS tokens.

Assets in Scope

Smart Contract — Official NEP17 Standard https://github.com/neo-project/examples/blob/master/csharp/NEP17/NEP17.cs
Web/App — Main Web App https://flamingo.finance/

Impacts in Scope

Only the following impacts are accepted within this bug bounty program. All other impacts are not considered as in-scope, even if they affect something in the assets in scope.

Smart Contracts/Blockchain

  • Smart contract hacks that lead to users losing funds
  • Smart contract hacks that lead to smart contracts malfunctioning
  • Smart contract exploits in general
  • Loss of user funds staked (principal) by freezing or theft
  • Theft of unclaimed yield
  • Freezing of unclaimed yield
  • Temporary freezing of funds for more than one day

Web/App

  • Thefts and freezing of unclaimed yield of any amount
  • Thefts and freezing of principal of any amount
  • Website crashes
  • Access to admin accounts without authorization (Cloudflare accounts, service management cloud software, e-mails, etc.)

Out of Scope & Rules

The following vulnerabilities are excluded from the rewards for this bug bounty program:
  • Attacks that the reporter has already exploited themselves, leading to damage
  • Attacks requiring access to leaked keys/credentials
  • Attacks requiring access to privileged addresses (governance, strategist)

Smart Contracts and Blockchain

  • Incorrect data supplied by third party oracles
  • Not to exclude oracle manipulation/flash loan attacks
  • Basic economic governance attacks (e.g. 51% attack)
  • Lack of liquidity
  • Best practice critiques
  • Sybil attacks
  • Centralization risks

Websites and Apps

  • Theoretical vulnerabilities without any proof or demonstration
  • Content spoofing / Text injection issues
  • Self-XSS
  • Captcha bypass using OCR
  • CSRF with no security impact (logout CSRF, change language, etc.)
  • Missing HTTP Security Headers (such as X-FRAME-OPTIONS) or cookie security flags (such as “httponly”)
  • Server-side information disclosure such as IPs, server names, and most stack traces
  • Vulnerabilities used to enumerate or confirm the existence of users or tenants
  • Vulnerabilities requiring unlikely user actions
  • URL Redirects (unless combined with another vulnerability to produce a more severe vulnerability)
  • Lack of SSL/TLS best practices
  • DDoS vulnerabilities
  • Attacks requiring privileged access from within the organization
  • Feature requests
  • Best practices

Prohibited activities

The following activities are prohibited by this bug bounty program
  • Any testing with mainnet or public testnet contracts; all testing should be done on private testnets
  • Any testing with pricing oracles or third party smart contracts
  • Attempting phishing or other social engineering attacks against our employees and/or customers
  • Any testing with third party systems and applications (e.g. browser extensions) as well as websites (e.g. SSO providers, advertising networks)
  • Any denial of service attacks
  • Automated testing of services that generates significant amounts of traffic
  • Public disclosure of an unpatched vulnerability in an embargoed bounty
