Oliver discovered and discretely made us aware of an XSS vulnerability in our platform. He provided a simple example of the issue and quickly confirmed it had been fixed after we released an update. Couldn't have asked for more.

Thank you for your responsible disclosure of several XSS attacks against The Den. This signalled that I had missed an update to the CMS and once patched they were resolved.
