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.
