Bug Bounty

Community engagement incentives

Bug Bounties

Program overview

Fei Protocol's goal is to maintain a liquid market in which ETH/FEI trades closely to the ETH/USD price. FEI achieves this via a new stability mechanism known as direct incentives. Direct incentive stable coins use dynamic mint rewards and burn penalties on DEX trade volume to maintain the peg. Governance can add and update DEX integrations and other incentives as needed, which uses the TRIBE governance token.

The bug bounty program is focused on its smart contracts and website and the prevention of the loss of user funds and the disruption of the governance system.

All bug submissions must go through Immunefi's bug submission process on the Fei bug bounty page.

The Fei bug bounty page can be viewed at https://immunefi.com/bounty/feiprotocol. When a hacker hits the "Submit bug report" button, they will be sent to bugs.immunefi.com which will guide them through the process of creating a bug report.

Rewards by threat level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System. This is a simplified 5-level scale, with separate scales for websites/apps and smart contracts/blockchains, encompassing everything from a consequence of exploitation to privilege required to the likelihood of a successful exploit.

Smart Contracts and Blockchain

Critical* Up to USD 1 000 000

High USD 7 500

Medium USD 3 250

Low USD 1 000

Websites and Apps

Critical USD 15 000

High USD 10 000

Medium USD 1 000

Low USD 200

Payouts are handled by the Fei Protocol team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in TRIBE or FEI.

*Critical-level smart contract vulnerabilities that result in the loss of user funds will have rewards additionally capped at 10% of the funds potentially affected based on the vulnerability that was identified. These rewards are additionally only payable in TRIBE and have a vesting schedule lasting between 6-12 months with a minimum of 6 months for rewards up to USD 400 000, with an additional month added for every USD 100,000 tranche, rounded up.

Out of Scope & Rules

The following vulnerabilities are excluded from the rewards for this bug bounty program:

All Programs

  • Attacks that the reporter has already exploited themselves, leading to damage

  • Attacks requiring access to leaked keys/credentials

  • Attacks requiring access to privileged addresses (governance, strategist)

Smart Contracts and Blockchain

  • Incorrect data supplied by third party oracles

    • Not to exclude oracle manipulation/flash loan attacks

  • Basic economic governance attacks (e.g. 51% attack)

  • Lack of liquidity

  • Best practice critiques

  • Sybil attacks

Websites and Apps

  • Theoretical vulnerabilities without any proof or demonstration

  • Content spoofing / Text injection issues

  • Self-XSS

  • Captcha bypass using OCR

  • CSRF with no security impact (logout CSRF, change language, etc.)

  • Missing HTTP Security Headers (such as X-FRAME-OPTIONS) or cookie security flags (such as “httponly”)

  • Server-side information disclosure such as IPs, server names, and most stack traces

  • Vulnerabilities used to enumerate or confirm the existence of users or tenants

  • Vulnerabilities requiring unlikely user actions

  • URL Redirects (unless combined with another vulnerability to produce a more severe vulnerability)

  • Lack of SSL/TLS best practices

  • DDoS vulnerabilities

  • Attacks requiring privileged access from within the organization

The bug bounty program prohibits the following activities:

  • Any testing with mainnet or public testnet contracts; all testing should be done on private testnets

  • Any testing with pricing oracles or third party smart contracts

  • Attempting phishing or other social engineering attacks against our employees and/or customers

  • Any testing with third-party systems and applications (e.g., browser extensions) as well as websites (e.g., SSO providers, advertising networks)

  • Any denial of service attacks

  • Automated testing of services that generates significant amounts of traffic

  • Public disclosure of an unpatched vulnerability in an embargoed bounty
