Program Overview

Arbitrum is a scaling solution for Ethereum developed by Offchain Labs that drastically reduces costs and latency. An "Optimistic Rollup", Arbitrum instantly scales apps, reducing costs and increasing capacity, without sacrificing Ethereum's security. Arbitrum validators optimistically post updates to Ethereum, and the protocol uses an interactive fraud proof mechanism to resolve any disputes efficiently with a minimal on-chain footprint. Porting contracts to Arbitrum requires no code changes or downloads as Arbitrum is fully compatible with most existing Ethereum developer tooling. Arbitrum has just launched its mainnet beta, Arbitrum One, on Ethereum mainnet.

This bug bounty program is focused on their smart contracts and is focused on preventing the following impacts:

  • Loss of user funds by permanent freezing or direct theft
  • Temporary freezing of funds
  • Unable to call smart contract
  • Network shutdown
  • Smart contract gas drainage

Rewards by Threat Level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System. This is a simplified 5-level scale, with separate scales for websites/apps and smart contracts/blockchains, encompassing everything from consequence of exploitation to privilege required to likelihood of a successful exploit.

All bug reports must come with a PoC in order to be considered for a reward.

Critical bug reports are capped at 10% of economic damage, primarily considering the funds at risk, and taking into account branding and PR issues, at the discretion of the team. However, rewards for Critical bug reports have a minimum reward of USD 50 000.

Payouts are handled by the Offchain Labs team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in USDC.

However, only those in the Assets in Scope table are considered as in-scope of the bug bounty program.

Impacts in Scope

Only the following impacts are accepted within this bug bounty program. All other impacts are not considered as in-scope, even if they affect something in the assets in scope table.

Smart Contracts

  • Loss of user funds by permanent freezing or direct theft
  • Temporary freezing of funds other than withdrawals for one week or more
  • Delaying withdrawals at no cost to the exploiter
  • Unable to call smart contract
  • Network shutdown
  • Smart contract gas drainage
