What’s new in SecureDrop 2.4.1?

For administrators

  • Bugfix: SecureDrop 2.3.0 introduced an optional feature to prevent initial submission of a source’s secret seven word codename. The bug caused a server error for any initial messages containing non-ASCII characters. With this bugfix, the feature can be safely re-enabled in the submission preferences section of the admin Interface. (Issue, Pull Request)

What administrators need to do

SecureDrop Application and Monitor Servers will be updated to SecureDrop 2.4.1 automatically within 24 hours of the release. As with previous releases, we recommend that you update your Tails workstations to the latest version of Tails and the latest version of SecureDrop. Please see our upgrade guide for instructions.
