Introducing MMT's Bug Bounty program
If you believe you have found a serious security vulnerability on our site www.makemytrip.com or application (Android/iOS), we appreciate your help in letting us know responsibly. We treat all security reports as urgent and commit to investigating & resolving the issue within a reasonable timeframe. As a token of our appreciation, we offer a monetary reward depending on the impact of the issue. Please review this page, especially the responsible disclosure policy and reward guidelines before reporting.
While conducting your research, we ask that
You will protect our users' privacy and data in good faith. You will not access or modify other user's data without our permission.
You will ensure that no disruption is caused to the production systems, degradation of user experience and destruction of data during security testing.
If you inadvertently cause a privacy violation or disruption in the absence of any malicious intention (such as accessing account data, service configurations, or other confidential information) while investigating an issue, be sure to disclose this immediately in your communication with us.
You shall refrain from exploiting and/ or proceeding with subsequent testing of a security issue you discover for any reason (including demonstrating additional risk etc).
You allow us a reasonable period of time to investigate and remediate the issue before you share it with others or disclose it publicly.
You do not violate any other applicable laws or regulations.
In return, we commit to
A human acknowledgement of your report within 5 working days
Working with you to investigate and resolve the issue as quickly as possible
Keeping you informed of the status of the issue reported
Suitably reward your efforts (see reward guidelines below)
Mention on Hall of Fame (we will seek your consent)
Not pursue or support any legal action related to your research/ testing
Report defect using "Report Issue" link available on left hand side and provide all required details
You are a customer of MMT or a security researcher interested in making our sites and applications safe
If you are employed by MMT or are related to an employee of MMT (spouse, parent or sibling), you are NOT eligible for the bug bounty program
Monetary bounties for security reports are entirely at MMT's sole discretion, and will be decided based on risk, impact, and other factors. To qualify for a bounty, you need to meet the following requirements:
Adhere to our Responsible Disclosure Policy.
Report a security bug: that is, identify a vulnerability in our services or infrastructure which creates a security or privacy risk
Your report must describe a problem involving one the products or services listed under "Bug Bounty Program Scope".
You will render necessary assistance to MakeMyTrip to resolve the issue.
The bounty will be paid only after the issue has been fully resolved by MMT
We reserve the right to publish reports (and accompanying updates) without seeking your approval.
All payments will be made in Indian Currency (INR).
If we pay a bounty, the minimum reward is Rs.5000
In the event of duplicate reports, we award a bounty to the first person to submit an issue (MMT determines duplicates and may not share details on the other reports). A given bounty is only paid to one individual.
We verify that all bounty awards are permitted by applicable laws
Note that extremely low-risk issues may not qualify for a bounty at all. We will have the sole discretion to ascertain the risk category.
We seek to pay similar amounts for similar issues, but qualifying issues & amounts that are paid may change. Past rewards do not guarantee similar results in the future.
We specifically exclude certain types of potential security issues; these are listed under "Ineligible Reports".
A bounty shall only paid for bugs which have been unknown to MakeMyTrip. Already known bugs will not receive a bounty. Note: Reference is our internal bug tracking system.
While we care about vulnerabilities affecting other services we use, we cannot guarantee that our disclosure policies apply to services from other companies. And in this case, you will NOT be eligible for the bounty program.
Disclosure of the issue/ report via other means (like sharing it publicly on social media etc.) will render you ineligible for this program
You refrain from contacting any employee of MMT via any other means/ channels regarding the program
Scope for the bug bounty program includes only these sites and apps
Our mobile sites - on Android and iOS
Our mobile apps - on Android or iOS
Breach of program terms & guidelines
We expect you to respect all the terms and conditions of the program & responsible disclosure as stated above. Any breach will automatically disqualify you from the bug bounty program and serious breaches of the guidelines might result in suspension of your account and/or legal action.
Changes to Program Terms
The Bug Bounty Program, including its policies, are subject to change or cancellation by MMT at any time, without notice. As such, we may amend these Program Terms and/or its policies at any time by posting a revised version here.
