Your Site's Security is Our Top Priority.

On Wednesday 21 March, the Drupal security team announced a that there would be an extremely important security release of Drupal (SA CORE 2018 002) which would fix a vulnerability in the core code. This vulnerability affected every single Drupal site, whether on 8, 7, 6 or even 5.

This is not a new phenomenon, and is testament to the efficiency and professionalism of the Drupal Security Team that these vulnerabilities are found, fixed, and the releases managed appropriately.

Nate Haug: Site Upgraded to Backdrop 1.9.3

Planet Drupal - 30. März 2018 - 6:13
backdropDrupalSite News

Wow, has it really been over 3 years since Backdrop 1.0 came out? Quicksketch.org is now upgraded from Drupal 7 to Backdrop!

Despite having taken so long to get to it, the entire porting project (with a minor design refresh) still only took the span of 3 days. Though hourly it broke down to one plane ride and two days after work hours, around 12 hours total.

The initial upgrade took a few hours to get perfect. Backdrop updates from Drupal 7 via update.php, and while it worked right away, I had to make adjustments to my Drupal 7 site (such as upgrading Webform to the latest version) and then run the updates again. Updates coming from D7 to the current version of Backdrop still only take about 40 seconds for a small site like this. After upgrading, it took another 2 minutes to run the UTF8-MB4 update (allowing for emojis now ????).

The troubling thing though, is that it's still WAY too hard. 12 hours for a Drupal expert and Backdrop founder might be weeks for a typical developer.

Backdrop plans to maintain greater compatibility with previous versions, so I'm looking forward to this being the most difficult upgrade remaining. In order to even remotely compete with SaaS platforms, Backdrop needs to be a breeze to update. It's definitely a challenge, but one that Backdrop thus far has performed amazingly well. With nine feature-enhancing releases thus far and a complete upgrade path from D7 maintained through it all, the future for D7 users upgrading looks bright. ????

Drupalgeddon2: Should I worry about critical security updates? John Locke Thu, 03/29/2018 - 18:00

No, you should not. You should let us worry about them, and go back to your business.

Seriously, we're getting questions from all kinds of people about whether this matters. I'm a bit surprised that there is any question about that. Would you be concerned if your top salesperson was selling for somebody else? If your cashiers were jotting down credit card numbers when they charged a card? If your office became a well-known spot for illicit drug or gun dealers? If your office had a bunch of scammers squatting and running a pyramid scheme? If your confidential client information could be revealed as easily as using a bic pen on an old Kryptonite lock?

Bic Pen vs Kryptonite Lock

We've seen some variation of every single one of those scenarios. And all of them are possible with a remote code execution flaw in a web application, like yesterday's Drupal security vulnerability.

Drupal blog: Thanks to the Drupal Security Team for keeping us safe

Planet Drupal - 29. März 2018 - 20:06

This blog has been re-posted and edited with permission from Dries Buytaert's blog. Please leave your comments on the original post.

We released new versions of Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 yesterday that fixed a highly critical security bug. All software has security bugs, and fortunately for Drupal, critical security bugs are rare. What matters is how you deal with security releases.

I have the utmost respect for how the Drupal Security Team manages a security release like this — from fixing the bug, testing the solution, providing advance notice, coordinating the release, to being available for press inquiries and more.

The amount of effort, care and dedication that the Drupal Security Team invests to keep Drupal secure is unparalleled, and makes Drupal's security best-in-class. Thank you!
