If you believe you have discovered a vulnerability in MongoDB or have
experienced a security incident related to MongoDB, please report the

:issue:`SECURITY <SECURITY>` project in JIRA. MongoDB, Inc
responds to vulnerability notifications within 48 hours.

MongoDB, Inc. responds to vulnerability reports sent via
email with a response email that contains a reference number for a JIRA ticket

Evaluation of a Vulnerability Report
MongoDB, Inc. validates all submitted vulnerabilities and uses Jira
to track all communications regarding a vulnerability,
including requests for clarification or additional information. If
needed, MongoDB representatives set up a conference call to exchange
information regarding the vulnerability.
MongoDB, Inc. requests that you do *not* publicly disclose any information
regarding the vulnerability or exploit the issue until it has had the
opportunity to analyze the vulnerability, to respond to the notification,
and to notify key users, customers, and partners.
The amount of time required to validate a reported vulnerability
depends on the complexity and severity of the issue. MongoDB, Inc. takes all
required vulnerabilities very seriously and will always ensure that
there is a clear and open channel of communication with the reporter.
After validating an issue, MongoDB, Inc. coordinates public disclosure of
the issue with the reporter in a mutually agreed timeframe and
format. If required or requested, the reporter of a vulnerability will
receive credit in the published security bulletin.
