Apply Rate Limits of 1 per second to Automated Scanning
If you employ automated scanning tools, their requests must be rate limited to not exceed 1 requests per second. Failure to do so may be considered a DoS attack and will result in disqualification. Automated vulnerability scanners commonly have low priority issues and/or false positives. Before submitting the results from a scanner, please take a moment to confirm that the reported issues are actually valid and exploitable. Please submit an issue only if you have a reproduce-able proof-of-concept.
Send a Rich Report
Detailed steps on reproducing the bug. If valuable, please include any screenshots, links you clicked on, pages visited, etc. Quality not quantity. Keep focused on the technical details and provide precise explanations; stay clear of off-topic commentary. Provide a concrete attack scenario. How will this impact the company or our users?
