Drupal releases Security update for Multiple Vulnerabilities

Drupal is a content management software. It’s utilized to make a considerable amount of the websites and applications you utilize each day. Its tools help you to build the versatile, organized content that dynamic web experience require.

Drupal is a platform the United States, London, France, and more use to communicate with the citizen. It’s the system media organizations like BBC, NBC, and MTV UK relies on to educate and engage the world.


This release also incorporates a security-related update for the PHPUnit dev dependency.

  • Editor module incorrectly checks access to inline private files – Drupal 8 – Access Bypass – Critical – CVE-2017-6377

    While including a private file with a configured text editor (like CKEditor), the editor won’t accurately check access for the record being added, which ends up in an access bypass.

  • Some admin paths were not protected with a CSRF token – Drupal 8 – Cross Site Request Forgery – Moderately Critical – CVE-2017-6379

    Some administrative paths did exclude security for CSRF. This would permit an attacker to destroy a few block on a site. This issue is alleviated by the way that clients would need to know the block ID.

  • Remote code execution – Drupal 8 – Remote code execution – Moderately Critical – CVE-2017-6381

    A 3rd party development library incorporating with Drupal 8 development dependencies is helpless against remote code execution.

    This is relieved by the default .htaccess protection against PHP execution, and the way that Composer development dependencies aren’t installed normally.

    With version8.2.7 update guarantees that Drupal core requires the most secure version of PHPUnit accessible, so you should update any sites that do include dev dependencies with this version.

No progressions have been made to the .htaccess, web.config, robots.txt or default settings.php documents in this release, so upgrading custom variants of those records is not required.

Recommend Fix

Upgrade to Drupal 8.2.7 to fix the issue, Your can download Drupal 8.2.7 .
