Folks,

The following message is making the rounds of the Drupal community. The
last time an alert like this went out was back in the Fall of 2014 when the
issue led to thousands of Drupal sites being compromised in a matter of
hours.

I'll be applying any applicable updates quickly tomorrow afternoon, so you
may see a blip in the CALI website.

Of particular note is that since Drupal 6 is no longer supported it isn't
covered by this announcement but it may still be affected.

Happy patching,
Elmer.
