We Support the Mainstream Drupal: Drupal 7

by Elliot Christenson on July 1, 2020 - 9:03pm

Where Does Drupal 7 Fit?

Drupal 9 is the future of Drupal. No doubt. It's awesome.

Drupal 8 site owners are busy upgrading to Drupal 9!

Drupal 6 is still a reality for a large number of critical websites.

In fact, at myDropWizard, we spent a lot of time focusing on Drupal 6 over the years. 32,000 Drupal 6 sites is not an insignificant number, and many of them contract for suport with us.

Drupal 6 core security update for SA-CORE-2020-004

by David Snopek on June 17, 2020 - 2:15pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Critical security release for Drupal core to fix a (Cross-Site Request Forgery) CSRF vulnerability. You can learn more in the security advisory:

Drupal core - Moderately Critical - Cross Site Request Forgery - SA-CORE-2020-004

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch to fix, or a full release ZIP or TAR.GZ.

If you have a Drupal 6 site, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

FYI, there were other Drupal core security advisories made today, but those don't affect Drupal 6.

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for CKEditor module

by David Snopek on March 18, 2020 - 3:22pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the CKEditor module to fix a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

The CKEditor module provides one way to integrate CKEditor into Drupal.

Due to the usage of the JavaScript eval() function on non-filtered data in the admin section, it was possible for a user with permission to create content visible in the admin area to inject specially crafted malicious script.

The problem existed in CKEditor module for Drupal, not in JavaScript libraries with the same names, however, it's highly recommended that you update to the latest version of the CKEditor JavaScript library as well, because it also recently fixed some XSS vulnerabilities.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch or the full release.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the CKEditor module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).
