Withdrawing a repository security advisory

You can withdraw a repository security advisory that you've published.

Note: This article applies to editing repository-level advisories as a repository owner.

Users who are not repository owners can contribute to global security advisories in the GitHub Advisory Database at Edits to global advisories will not change or affect how the advisory appears on the repository. For more information, see "Editing security advisories in the GitHub Advisory Database."

If you publish a security advisory in error, you can withdraw the security advisory by contacting us through the GitHub Support portal.
