Subject: Re: CVE request: Concrete5 XSS vulnerability


You need to get your facts right before pointing fingers.
First of all and as we stated in our advisory on the 9th of December 2014,
the vulnerabilities were discovered on the 2nd of November 2014 to affect
5.7.2 (and later on December) which was the the latest version at
that time (As downloaded from
The fix on your github was pushed on the 10th of December 2014, a day after
we published our advisory on FD and Bugtraq.
You accuse us of being irresponsible and unprofessional for not disclosing
the vulnerabilities to you first and it's not true since we contacted you
twice through your security program at HackerOne (Report #33848) which
hasn't been even "triaged" yet.

I think what's really unprofessional is your inability to monitor your own
security programs while putting the blame on people who reach out to you to
help you fix your flaws.
