Ironman Software strives to help our customers minimize risk associated with security vulnerabilities in our products. Our goal is to provide customers with timely information, guidance, and mitigation options to address vulnerabilities.

How to Report a Security Vulnerability

If you identify a security vulnerability in any Ironman Software product, please report it to us immediately. Timely identification of security vulnerabilities is critical to mitigating potential risks to our customers. When reporting a potential vulnerability, please include as much of the below information as possible to help us better understand the nature and scope of the reported issue:

Handling Vulnerability Reports

Ironman Software believes in maintaining a good relationship with security researchers, and with their agreement, may recognize the researcher for finding a valid product vulnerability and privately reporting the issue. In return, we ask that researchers give us an opportunity to remediate the vulnerability before disclosing it publicly. Ironman Software believes that coordinating the public disclosure of a vulnerability is key to protecting our customers. According to this policy, all disclosed information about vulnerabilities is intended to remain between Ironman Software and the reporting party—if the information is not already public knowledge—until a remedy is available and disclosure activities are coordinated.

Vulnerability Remediation

After investigating and validating a reported vulnerability, we will attempt to develop and qualify the appropriate remedy for products under active support from Ironman Software. A remedy may take one or more of the following forms: Ironman Software makes every effort to provide the remedy or corrective action in the shortest commercially reasonable time. Response timelines depend on many factors, such as the severity, impact, the remedy complexity, the affected component (e.g., some updates require longer validation cycles or can only be updated in a major release), the stage of the product within its lifecycle, and status of business operations, among others.

Impact and Severity Ratings

Ironman Software currently uses the Common Vulnerability Scoring System version 3.1 (CVSS v3.1) open framework for communicating the characteristics and severity of Ironman Software's software vulnerabilities. Many factors, including the level of effort required to exploit a vulnerability as well as the potential impact to data or business activities from a successful exploit, are taken into consideration. The overall impact of a security advisory is a textual representation of the severity (i.e., critical, high, medium, and low) that follows the CVSS Severity Qualitative Severity Rating Scale for the highest CVSS Base Score of all identified vulnerabilities. When and where applicable, Ironman Software will provide an overall impact for the advisory and for each identified vulnerability the CVSS v3.1 Base Score and corresponding CVSS v3.1 Vector. Ironman Software recommends that all customers take into account both the base score and any temporal and/or environmental metrics that may be relevant to their environment to assess their overall risk.

Remedy Communication

Usually, we communicate remedies to customers through Ironman Software Security Advisories, where applicable. To protect our customers, Ironman Software strives to release a Security Advisory once we have a remedy in place for any affected product(s). RIronman SoftwareSA may release Security Notices sooner to respond appropriately to public disclosures or widely known vulnerabilities in the components used within our products. Security Advisories are intended to provide enough details to allow customers to assess the impact of vulnerabilities and to remedy potentially vulnerable products. Full details may be limited to reduce the likelihood that malicious users can take advantage of the information and exploit it to the detriment of our customers. Ironman Software Security Advisories will typically include the following information, as applicable:

Additional Disclosure Information

Ironman Software's policy is not to provide information about the specifics of vulnerabilities beyond what is provided in the Security Advisory and related documentation, such as release notes, knowledgebase articles, FAQs, etc. We do not distribute exploit/proof of concept code for identified vulnerabilities. In accordance with industry practices, Ironman Software does not share the findings from its internal security testing or other types of security activities with external entities.


All aspects of Ironman Software's Vulnerability Response Policy are subject to change without notice and on a case-by-case basis. Response is not guaranteed for any specific issue or class of issues. Your use of the information contained in this docu
