Security Release: Drupal 7 and 8

The Drupal project released a new update that fixes several security vulnerabilities. We strongly recommend upgrading your existing Drupal 7 and 8 sites.

Information regarding the additional changes is available in the official security advisory. In response to the new Drupal version, we have released the following: Bitnami Drupal 7 and 8 installers, virtual machines, and cloud images.


Two notable issues include:
  1. A vulnerability exists in the User module, where if some specific contributed or custom code triggers a rebuild of the user profile form, a registered user can be granted all user roles on the site. This would typically result in the user gaining administrative access.
  2. An access bypass vulnerabilty exists in the Views module, where users without the "View content count" permission can see the number of hits collected by the Statistic module for results in the view.
Our new releases fix the known security issues. There are no new features or non-security related bug fixes in these releases.

If you have questions about Bitnami Drupal or these security issues, please post to our community forum and we will be happy to help you.
