Heads up! We appreciate every report, however, please notice that our team is very busy and therefore won't respond to reports which we rate as "low" severity or invalid (e.g. DoS in Apache our "X-Powered-By" headers). So do us and yourself a favour: Don't report such things, we will ignore it.
If you've discovered a security issue with ownCloud, please read our responsible disclosure policy and contact security (at) owncloud (dot) com. Your report should include:
  • Product version
  • A vulnerability description
  • Reproduction steps
A member of the security team will confirm the vulnerability, determine its impact, and develop a fix. The fix will be applied to the master branch, tested, and packaged in the next security release. The vulnerability will be publicly announced after the release. Finally, your name will be added to the hall of fame as a thank you from the entire ownCloud community.
