With the press reporting data hacking of major corporate IT systems almost on a daily basis, the average person is so much more aware of security than ever before.
The good news is that Drupal has a security team and process in place to address potential security exposures. The bad news is that you really need to apply these security updates as soon as they are released. Why?
When Drupal 7 security updates are released, they are announced to the public. Guess what? Not only are Drupal folks reading these announcements, but the bad guys are reading the same announcements. If they can, they investigate the exposure and try to break into targeted websites on the same day that the security update is released.
Hence, the name “Zero day exploit”. Your website could be susceptible to these Drupal vulnerabilities if you do not follow Drupal security best practices.
An important part of how we support our client sites is to apply these security updates ASAP.
