Which versions of Mahara are fixed?

Mahara 21.04, 21.10, and 22.04 are currently supported for security fixes. You can download the latest minor point versions 21.04.6, 21.10.4, and 22.04.2 respectively to receive the fix for this security issue.

Mahara 20.04 and 20.10 are not supported with security fixes any more. However, you can patch your site by backporting the fix to your instance, i.e. download the two changed files (or download a patch file) and merge them into your codebase. You may have to resolve merge conflicts, esp. if you changed anything in these files yourself.

Where can I find the security releases?

You can download the latest versions from Launchpad or check out the relevant branch from Git.
