On March 21, 2018, Drupal announced a security release of Drupal 7.x, 8.3.x, 8.4.x, and 8.5.x on March 28th, 2018 between 18:00 – 19:30 UTC that will fix a “highly critical security vulnerability”. The Drupal Security Team urges you to reserve time for core updates at that time because exploits might be developed within hours or days. Full details are here: .
Fíonta is taking this update very seriously and we have reached out to every one of our Drupal clients to schedule and perform emergency maintenance on Wednesday 3/28 and Thursday 3/29.
If you have a Drupal website and would like to have Fíonta install and test next week’s security patch, please contact us today. While we never want to sound alarmist, this is an extremely important security patch and Drupal websites that are not updated will be vulnerable to malicious activity.
