AEX operated by Bit World Investments Limited has become one of the earliest digital asset exchanges. As an important link of the blockchain, AEX has always played an indispensably important role in token circulation and trading. With the market growing in size and various cryptocurrency derivatives springing up in recent years, AEX has gradually evolved its positioning from the original transaction matchmaker towards a global digital asset management service provider that advocates safe investment and stable asset appreciation.

● SSL Pinning

● Sensitive data in memory

● Biometric authentication issues

● Balance manipulation

● XML External Entity Attacks (XXE)

● Database vulnerability, SQLi


Vulnerabilities found in out of scope resources are unlikely to be rewarded unless they present a serious business risk (at our sole discretion). In general, the following vulnerabilities do not correspond to the severity threshold:

● Vulnerabilities in third-party applications

● Assets that do not belong to the company

● Vulnerabilities requiring any third-party apps (including malware) to be installed in the victim's device

● Best practices concerns

● Recently (less than 30 days) disclosed 0day vulnerabilities

● Other browser sessions not logging out immediately upon a change in password/ setup of 2FA

● Vulnerabilities affecting users of outdated browsers or platforms

● Social engineering, phishing, physical, or other fraud activities

● Publicly accessible login panels without proof of exploitation

● Reports that state that software is out of date/vulnerable without a proof of concept

● Reports that generated by scanners or any automated or active exploit tools

● Vulnerabilities involving active content such as web browser add-ons

● Most brute-forcing issues without clear impact

● Denial of service (DoS/DDoS)

● Theoretical issues

● Moderately Sensitive Information Disclosure

● Spam (sms, email, etc)

● Missing HTTP security headers

● Infrastructure vulnerabilities, including:

● Certificates/TLS/SSL-related issues;

● DNS issues (i.e. MX records, SPF records, DMARC records etc.);

● Server configuration issues (i.e., open ports, TLS, etc.)

● Open redirects

● Session fixation

● User account enumeration

● Clickjacking/Tapjacking and issues only exploitable through clickjacking/tap jacking

● Descriptive error messages (e.g. Stack Traces, application or server errors)

● Self-XSS that cannot be used to exploit other users

● Login & Logout CSRF

● Weak Captcha/Captcha Bypass

● Lack of Secure and HTTPOnly cookie flags

● Username/email enumeration via Login/Forgot Password Page error messages

● CSRF in forms that are available to anonymous users (e.g. the contact form)

● OPTIONS/TRACE HTTP method enabled

● Host header issues without proof-of-concept demonstrating the vulnerability

● Content spoofing and text injection issues without showing an attack vector/without being able to modify HTML/CSS

● Content Spoofing without embedded links/HTML

● Reflected File Download (RFD)

● Mixed HTTP Content

● HTTPS Mixed Content Scripts

● No rate limit issues (without clear security impact)

● Manipulation with Password Reset Token

● MitM and local attacks

● DoS/DDoS issues


● Attacks requiring physical access to a user's device

● Vulnerabilities requiring extensive user interaction

● Exposure of non-sensitive data on the device

● Reports from static analysis of the binary without PoC that impacts business logic

● Lack of obfuscation/binary protection/root(jailbreak) detection

● Bypass certificate pinning on rooted devices

● Lack of Exploit mitigations i.e., PIE, ARC, or Stack Canaries

● Sensitive data in URLs/request bodies when protected by TLS

● Path disclosure in the binary

● OAuth & app secret hard-coded/recoverable in IPA, APK

● Sensitive information retained as plaintext in the device’s memory

● Crashes due to malformed URL Schemes or Intents sent to exported Activity/Service/Broadcast Receiver (exploiting these for sensitive data leakage is commonly in scope)

● Any kind of sensitive data stored in-app private directory

● Runtime hacking exploits using tools like but not limited to Frida/ Appmon (exploits only possible in a jailbroken environment)

● Shared links leaked through the system clipboard

● Any URIs leaked because a malicious app has permission to view URIs opened.

● Exposure of API keys with no security impact (Google Maps API keys etc.)

● Everything included in the OUT OF SCOPE - WEB section

●Avoid using web application scanners for automatic vulnerability searching which generates massive traffic

●Make every effort not to damage or restrict the availability of products, services, or infrastructure

●Avoid compromising any personal data, interruption, or degradation of any service

●Don’t access or modify other user data, localize all tests to your accounts

●Perform testing only within the scope

●Don’t exploit any DoS/DDoS vulnerabilities, social engineering attacks, or spam

●Don’t spam forms or account creation flows using automated scanners

●In case you find chain vulnerabilities we’ll pay only for vulnerability with the highest severity.

●Don’t break any law and stay within the defined scope

●Any details of found vulnerabilities must not be communicated to anyone who is not a

●HackenProof Team or an authorized employee of this Company without appropriate permission

● As this is a private program, please do not discuss this program or any vulnerabilities (even resolved ones) outside of the program without express consent from the organization

● No vulnerability disclosure, including partial, is allowed for the moment.

● Please do NOT publish/discuss bugs

We are happy to thank everyone who submits valid reports, which help us improve the security. However, only those who meet the following eligibility requirements may receive a monetary reward:

●The vulnerability must be a qualifying vulnerability

●Any vulnerability found must be reported no later than 24 hours after discovery, and exclusively through

●You must send a clear textual description of the report along with steps to reproduce the issue, including attachments such as screenshots or proof of concept code as necessary.

●You must not be a former or current employee of us or one of its contractors.

●ONLY USE YOUR HackerProof ADDRESS (in case of violation, no bounty can be awarded)
