ISO 27005 defines vulnerability as: "A weakness of an asset or group of assets that can be exploited by one or more threats."
The Eclipse Security Team
The Eclipse Security Team provides help and advice to Eclipse projects on security issues and is the first point of contact for handling security vulnerabilities. Members of the Security Team are committers on Eclipse projects and members of the Eclipse Architecture Council.
Contact the Eclipse Security Team.
Reporting a Security Vulnerability
Vulnerabilities can be reported either via email to the Eclipse Security Team or directly with a project via Bugzilla.
The general security mailing list address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Members of the Eclipse Security Team will receive messages sent to this address. This address should be used only for reporting undisclosed Vulnerabilities; regular bug reports and questions unrelated to Vulnerabilities in Eclipse software will be ignored. Note that this email address is not encrypted.
The community is also encouraged to report Vulnerabilities using the standard Eclipse Bugzilla instance. Bug reports related to Vulnerabilities must be marked as "committers-only", either by the reporter, or by a committer during the triage process. Note that bugs marked "committers-only" are visible to all Eclipse committers. By default, a "committers-only" bug is also accessible to the reporter and individuals explicitly indicated in the "cc" list.
Disclosure is initially limited to the reporter and all Eclipse Committers, but is expanded to include other individuals, and the general public. The timing and manner of disclosure is governed by the Eclipse Security Policy.
Publicly disclosed bugs are listed on the Disclosed Vulnerabilities Page.
