Eligible Domains Policy
The following domains are included for the Jolis International family of companies:
Certain vulnerabilities are considered out-of-scope for the Bug Bounty Program. Those out-of-scope vulnerabilities include, but are not limited to:
You may be eligible to receive a monetary reward, or “bounty,” if: (i) you are the first person to submit a site or product vulnerability; (ii) that vulnerability is determined to by a valid security issue by Jolis International’s security team; and (iii) you have complied with all Program Terms.
Bounty payments, if any, will be determined by Jolis International, in Jolis International’s sole discretion. In no event shall Jolis International be obligated to pay you a bounty for any Submission. All bounty payments shall be considered gratuitous.
In the event Jolis International elects to pay you a bounty, Jolis International may make a partial payment when the vulnerability is first verified by Jolis International and then an additional payment once the vulnerability has been fixed. The format and timing of all bounty payments shall be determined in Jolis International’s sole discretion.
All bounty payments must be made to a Jolis International Account in good standing. If you do not have a Jolis International Account in good standing at the time of payment, you will not be eligible to receive a bounty (except in extraordinary circumstances agreed to by Jolis International via email from the Bug Bounty Program team).
All bounty payments will be made in United States dollars (USD). You will be responsible for any tax implications related to bounty payments you receive, as determined by the laws of your jurisdiction of residence or citizenship.
Jolis International will determine all bounty payout based on the risk and impact of the vulnerability. The minimum bounty amount for a validated bug submission is $1 USD and the maximum bounty for a validated bug submission is $100 USD.
Jolis International Bug Bounty Team retains the right to determine if the bug submitted to the Bug Bounty Program is eligible. All determinations as to the amount of a bounty made by the Jolis International Bug Bounty Team are final.
+Payout ranges are based on the classification and sensitivity of the data impacted, ease of exploit and overall risk to Jolis International customers, Jolis International brand and determined to be a valid security issue by Jolis International’s security engineers. Common sensitive data elements include customer social security number, credit card number, card verification code, bank account number, login credentials and passwords. Jolis International may pay beyond the range at times when bugs are found to have significant risk.
#Please note that Clickjacking and CSRF vulnerabilities are only reviewed for sites and pages where the ease of exploit and risk to Jolis International is significant. Also, please note that, while "Logout CSRF" is a well-acknowledged issue, there are other techniques (like "cookie forcing" and "cookie bombardment") that can make it futile to defend against this attack. Also, Jolis International web sessions are relatively short lived and hence, the Jolis International will not consider reports of the ability to log out users from Jolis International as qualifying for a bounty.
Wall of Fame
In the event (i) you breach any of these Program Terms or the terms and conditions of the Jolis International Agreements; or (ii) Jolis International determines, in its sole discretion that your continued participation in the Bug Bounty Program could adversely impact Jolis International (including, but not limited to, presenting any threat to Jolis International’s systems, security, finances and/or reputation) Jolis International may immediately terminate your participation in the Bug Bounty Program and disqualify you from receiving any bounty payments. Please see our recommendations on the proper procedures for testing our applications.

Frequently Asked Questions
What constitutes a valid bug submission?
The bug must be in scope of our program sites, within a category of vulnerabilities that are within program scope, and found to be a valid security issue by our security engineers. Your submission must be the first of its kind as duplicate submissions will be invalid.
What is considered within the payout range of bounties?
Payout ranges are based on the classification of the data impacted, ease of exploit and overall risk to Jolis International customers and the Jolis International brand. We may pay beyond the range at times when bugs are found to have significant risk. The amount of all bounty payments, if any, will be determined by Jolis International, in Jolis International’s sole discretion.
Is my bug fixed? Where is my payout?
If you have reviewed your bug and believe it is fixed, please contact us and let us know. We will review your bug and verify if it is fixed. When your bug is fixed, your final bounty will be submitted and you will receive an email notification.
Why was my bug submission found to be a duplicate?
If the bug you have reported was already submitted by another researcher and found to be valid, we will not be able to honor similar bug submissions following that. We have had great participation from our research community. The growing volume of researchers will many times lead to duplicate bug findings. We must honor the first submission of its type and reject subsequent submissions.
What types of bugs are typically awarded on the high range of bounties?
Besides the category of bug and the risk it presents, the type of information exposed is important when determining the severity. Confidential or restricted customer personal identifiable information (PII) exposed as well as the content sensitivity of the page are factors that can facilitate a higher bounty payout.
What types of bugs are commonly rejected?
Bugs that present negligible to no impact to our customers or company. Common examples include:
What should I be aware of when testing?
Will any of my previously filed bugs be lost if I create a new Bug Bounty account using Jolis International login?
We want to assure you that none of the account history will be lost. You will continue to get notifications to your email for any status changes on previously filed bugs. If you need additional information concerning any open issues filed through the old portal, please contact us with the correct EIBBP number.
Remote Code Execution (RCE) Submission Guidelines
Vulnerabilities which allow execution of code on the application server or shell commands on the server itself.
Minimal information collected from vulnerable server required for RCE submissions:
Minimal Information about exploit required for RCE submissions:
Prohibited actions when conduction RCE attempts:
Do’s and Don'ts
Do - Provide a detailed description of the vulnerability being reported
Do - Define the Risk (Impact x Exploitability) of the vulnerability
Do - Provide all URL(s)/application(s) affected
Do - Provide all steps required to reproduce the exploit and the vulnerability
Do - Provide PoC video or screenshots with your submission
Do - Always include the user ID that is used for the PoC
Do – Submit end to end POC
Do - Always include all of the files that you attempted to uploaded
Do - Provide all IPs that were used while testing (especially important for things like RCE where another team will need this to investigate)
Do – Submit all pieces to an attack as they are required for validation

Don't - Complete PoC’s that will cause harm to Jolis International or our customers (i.e. Denial of service, tampering with sensitive data, etc.)

Don't - Save proof of concept information in publicly available sources (i.e. Public YouTube videos, imgur links, or anything else someone can view without authentication)
Don't – Submit the only the beginning piece of an attack and assume that it will work.
Don't - Submit the same vulnerability twice instead of asking the status of the original
Don't - Resubmit the same vulnerabilities again after they have been found to be not actionable due to low risk
Don't - Group vulnerabilities into one single ticket that have different distinct remediation efforts
Don't - Submit bugs that Don't affect the latest version of modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari), and Bugs related to browser extensions are also out of scope.
