Drupal 7 and 8 core critical release on April 25th, 2018 PSA-2018-003.
After the recent Drupal core highly critical remote code execution, the Drupal Security team has worked on the clock to prevent any eventual problems that may appear on Drupal powered platforms. In an official announcement made on the drupal.org platform, we are informed that “there will be a security release of Drupal 7.x, 8.4.x, and 8.5.x on April 25th, 2018 between 16:00 - 18:00 UTC.This PSA is to notify that the Drupal core release is outside of the regular schedule of security releases”.
This release comes as a follow-up fo the recent SA-CORE-2018-002 made on March 28.
The good news is that this release will not require a database update, so this update will require less time.
