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 the Mailhandler module to fix a Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability.

Remote Code Execution vulnerabilities are scary - it basically means that an attacker can run arbitrary code on your site. However, there a number of mitigating factors in this case, so, it's recommended to read the security advisory for Drupal 7.

With the help of the D6LTS vendors, a new version was released for Drupal 6 as well.

You can also download the patch the patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Mailhandler 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).
