The Security Team

Security is taken very seriously by the developers of TYPO3. The visible part of that concern is the TYPO3 security team. We are responsible for all security related concerns in the TYPO3 ecosystem. This includes:

  • Handling of reported security issues for the TYPO3 core and extensions. 
  • Coordinating security fixes with the TYPO3 core team and extension developers
  • Publishing security bulletins for TYPO3 core and extension issues
  • Providing assistance for extension developers in resolving security issues
  • Providing TYPO3 security guidelines
  • Help the TYPO3 server team keeping the infrastructure secure

How to report a Security Issue

If you have found a security issue in a TYPO3 extension or the TYPO3 core system, please report it to us by following the instructions described on this page.
