When your program receives spam bug reports, we ask that you report them using the ‘Spam’ button on the report page. This helps us to build a dataset that we can use to implement better spam reduction policies.
When you click the ‘Spam’ button, a module will appear asking you to select a reason that explains the nature of the spam report. Once you select a reason and you click the ‘Close report as spam’ button, a message will automatically appear on the timeline stating that the report has been closed as spam, and the report status will be changed to ‘closed’.
Types of spam
There are multiple reasons why a report could justifiably be considered spam. You will need to select one of the reasons below when you flag and close a spam report.
- A.I. report (ChatGPT)- The report was generated by an artificial intelligence like ChatGPT, or another openAI service.
- Begging for money- The user is begging or asking for money without providing a proper vulnerability.
- Extortion or threat- The user is threatening you for money by withholding information.
- Extremely low quality- The report lacks effort/quality and fails to meet the minimum standard for a bug report.
- Irrelevant- The report is not relevant to your bug bounty program.
- Complexity poaching (pseudo submissions)- The report is overly complex and does not present a clear, specific vulnerability.
- Other- The report does not fit into any of the above categories, but it cannot be considered a serious bug report. If you select this option, please provide a brief explanation in the text box.
The behavior outlined in the reasons above represents a clear violation of our rules. By flagging these bad reports, you help us to warn or remove the offending users, which will improve your experience on Immunefi.
