- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-PSA-2018-001
- Project: Drupal Core
- Version: 7.x, 8.x
- Date: 2018-March-21
There will be a security release of Drupal 7.x, 8.3.x, 8.4.x, and 8.5.x on March 28th 2018 between 18:00 - 19:30 UTC, one week from the publication of this document, that will fix a highly critical security vulnerability. The Drupal Security Team urges you to reserve time for core updates at that time because exploits might be developed within hours or days. Security release announcements will appear on the Drupal.org security advisory page.
While Drupal 8.3.x and 8.4.x are no longer supported and we don't normally provide security releases for unsupported minor releases, given the potential severity of this issue, we are providing 8.3.x and 8.4.x releases that includes the fix for sites which have not yet had a chance to update to 8.5.0. The Drupal security team strongly recommends the following:
- Sites on 8.3.x should immediately update to the 8.3.x release that will be provided in the advisory, and then plan to update to the latest 8.5.x security release in the next month.
- Sites on 8.4.x should immediately update to the 8.4.x release that will be provided in the advisory, and then plan to update to the latest 8.5.x security release in the next month.
- Sites on 7.x or 8.5.x can immediately update when the advisory is released using the normal procedure.
The security advisory will list the appropriate version numbers for all three Drupal 8 branches. Your site's update report page will recommend the 8.5.x release even if you are on 8.3.x or 8.4.x, but temporarily updating to the provided backport for your site's current version will ensure you can update quickly without the possible side effects of a minor version update.
The Security Team or any other party is not able to release any more information about this vulnerability until the announcement is made. The announcement will be made public at https://www.drupal.org/security, over Twitter, and in email for those who have subscribed to our email list. To subscribe to the email list: log in on drupal.org, go to your user profile page and subscribe to the security newsletter on the Edit » My newsletters tab.
Journalists interested in covering the story are encouraged to email email@example.com to be sure they will get a copy of the journalist-focused release. The Security Team will release a journalist-focused summary email at the same time as the new code release and advisory.
If you find a security issue, please report it at https://www.drupal.org/security-team/report-issue.

Piotr Zgodziński shares a super cool story about how he resurrected Blender's predecessor, Traces, and where some of its idiosyncrasies like right-click select come from. Very interesting reading, and if you want you can download Traces and run it on your old Amiga hardware (or emulator ;-). There are many fascinating things that date way [...]

TheDuckCow shows how a few lines of Python code can make a big difference in how you use linked assets. Have you ever library linked a group from another blender file, but wished you could easily modify one part of it? Well, you could always modify the library linked source file, setup driver controls, or… [...]
