Thursday, April 20
Happy Thursday. Make it a great day!
Missing Server Side Rate Limiting can Lead to VK Account Take over [11 upvotes] - $400 bounty for this report to VK.com from @mandy1394. Private conversation details and POC but getting some upvote love. Love this quick summary by VK: “Insufficient flood control”. Brevity and clarity, FTW.
User Information Disclosure via REST API [4 upvotes] - no bounty for this report to ownCloud from @alykode. This is the internet - hackers are not always motivated by the almighty doubloon. Kudos to @alykode for reporting the issue and ownCloud for communicating explicitly with the researcher and disclosing the vulnerability report.
