Learn about the four types of advisories and notices BlackBerry publishes to protect customers from emerging threats.

Vulnerability Disclosure Policy

All reports of vulnerabilities in BlackBerry products or services are investigated by the BlackBerry SIRT. For currently supported and non-beta products, the BlackBerry SIRT will follow BlackBerry triage and remediation processes and take appropriate action to help protect customers. For confirmed vulnerabilities in publicly released, in-support products, this will normally result in the publication of a security advisory, along with a corresponding software update to address the issue.

When vulnerabilities are reported to BlackBerry, industry standard best practices around coordinated vulnerability disclosure are followed and individuals and/or companies who worked with the company on security advisories are acknowledged. BlackBerry also acknowledges individuals and/or companies who report non-advisory class issues for their work to help protect BlackBerry customers.
