The information in this wiki hasn't been maintained for a good while. Some of the projects described have since been deprecated.

In particular, the "Ushahidi Platform v3.x" section contains information that is often misleading. Many details about this version of Platform have changed since.

This website is an extraction of the original Ushahidi wiki into a static form. Because of that, functions like logging in, commenting or searching will not work.

Security Advisories posted by the Ushahidi team covering the Ushahidi, Crowdmap, and SwiftRiver platforms.

Ushahidi is an open source software project. We aim to make the platform as secure as possible. It is your responsibility to train your users, test security, and build privacy requirements for your project. We are here to support you with community efforts. While we try to create great software, the old adage applied: Sometimes there will be bugs; we will fix them and advise you.

Please refer the subpages of this section for security updates. Descriptions, instructions, and recommendations are provided in each.
