WordPress Developers - What to do if a vulnerability is found in your plugin

In the wake of the Jetpack security update, Ben Lobaugh is coming to talk to us about what to do if a vulnerability is found in your own plugin.

Our meetup will be in a new local this evening. DevLocal will be hosting. Parking spots are plentiful around DevLocal but an open spot can sometimes take time to locate.

    https://hackerone.com is a great service for anyone who wants to offer security bounties for vulnerabilities in their plugins, network infrastructure, security/privacy policies, etc.

    You're basically asking people to try and hack you (but not do any damage), and then disclose the vulnerabilities they find privately so you can fix them. Then you offer them a reward for helping you out :)

      Hi Ben, I have a Canon T3i that records video that I'd be happy to bring, but I'll need a tripod...let me know.

      I do not think there is a tripod available

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
