Reporting a security breach

We do all we can to keep our systems secure. But it's always possible that you'll spot a weakness we've missed. If you do, please let us know, so that we can do something about it quickly. Reporting problems you come across is known as responsible disclosure.

How to report a problem?

  • Include as much information as possible, because that will help us reproduce the problem and put it right. We'd ideally like to have a description of what you discovered, complete with IP addresses, logs, screenshots and so on.

  • Please include your contact details (phone number or e-mail address), so that we can get in touch if we need to know more.
