Southparkfan created this task.

Got this so far:

Miraheze takes the security of its data and servers very serious. Where possible and feasible, we put technical and social measures in place to protect our services. However, being online inherently comes with security risks. Shall you find a security issue on our platform, you are encouraged to work with us in order to fix the issue! This page lists our [[:w:Responsible discloure|responsible disclosure policy]]. 

== Report a security issue ==
Regardless of the severity of the issue, we urge you to '''not discuss the issue publicly'''. Miraheze expects you to play by these rules:
* If you have a Miraheze or GitHub account, you can use our [ special Phabricator form] for reporting your findings, which creates a task hidden from public view and notifies our Security team. If yo choose to use Phabricator, do not create a task using other forms! You can also send your findings via e-mail to security{{@}},
* Do not take advantage of the vulnerability or problem you have discovered, for example by downloading more data than necessary to demonstrate the vulnerability or deleting or modifying other people's data,
* Do not reveal the problem to others until it has been resolved,
* Do not use attacks on physical security, social engineering, distributed denial of service, spam or applications of third parties, and
* Do provide sufficient information to reproduce the problem, so we will be able to resolve it as quickly as possible. Usually, the IP address or the URL of the affected system and a description of the vulnerability will be sufficient, but complex vulnerabilities may require further explanation.

Miraheze would like to thank you for following this policy. As such, Miraheze promises the following:
* We will respond to your report within three business days with our evaluation of the report and an expected resolution date,
* If you have followed the instructions above, we will not take any legal action against you in regard to the report,
* We will handle your report with strict confidentiality, and not pass on your personal details to third parties without your permission,
* We will keep you informed of the progress towards resolving the problem,
* In the public information concerning the problem reported, we will give your name as the discoverer of the problem (unless you desire otherwise), and
# If you wish, you will be mentioned in our Hall of Fame.

If yo choose to use Phabricator, do not create a task using other forms!

If yo choose? Is that some american easter egg or a spelling mistake? :)
