HSD has a Responsible Disclosure Policy for its IT systems. Recently, Ashish Kunwar reported a weak point in the HSD website, showing the importance of having such a policy. It concerns common DNS misconfiguration, reported by Travis Ormandy, that can result in a minor security issue with web applications.


Our website developer Maaike Media quickly took action to solve these issues. We are very grateful for their expertise and professional response. 


The HSD Responsible Disclosure Policy is based on the Guideline Responsible Disclosure published by the NCSC and was introduced after the HSD Café on Ethical Hacking and Responsible Disclosure during the Cyber Security Week 2015.
