back to article Running Drupal? You need to patch, patch, patch right now!

Anyone running a website built with Drupal should stop whatever they are doing right now and install critical security patches.

    As patches go, not bad, considering

    Considering the raft of bad updates from major players, like MS and Apple, the Drupal update was well announced, delivered on time and easily installed.

    And it didn't break anything!!! Nothing to complain about here.

      +120 sites so far with differing versions (7.58 through 8.39 and 8.46 to 8.51). 4 breaks so far from legacy bad Jquery (is there good Jquery?) and just started hitting the Red Bull as the sun comes up.

      Oh, and my Jenkins server just went down ...

    Drupal 6 patch

    The Drupal 6 patch is available from the LTS Drupal sites. It was made available minutes after the D7 and D8 patches.

    Just search for Drupal 6 LTS on Drupal's website.

      I absolutely hate this. Absolutely hate it. People are freaking out about Drupal 6, when the security team officially supports 7 and 8. I'm seeing all sorts of links to weird pages claiming they have patches for D6. I absolutely hate the idea of sending people to unofficial security fixes. The damage possible is obvious.

      I think I've got the patch link right now. Should be this one

      Use entirely at your own risk.
