Drupal has today (February 20, 2019) released a fix for the critical security vulnerability, referenced as CVE-2019-6340, which resolves a major flaw in the content management system.
Today, 19th February 2019, Drupal has released an official warning in order to alert site administrators of an impending security release for Drupal 8 which will be released tomorrow, 20th February 2019.
The concern about whether Drupal is dying, losing popularity, or even becoming obsolete has been probed repeatedly for years. This question seems to reappear constantly, like a bad smell. And so, in 2019, is Drupal dead? No.
Even though it’s now been several years since Drupal 8 was released (November 2015), it’s a question many developers find themselves asking.
Drupal is one of the most popular open-source content management systems used by web developers today. It’s often touted as the enterprise CMS of choice and is popular among businesses and organizations of all sizes.
Drupal has, just like any other content management system, fell victim to several major security flaws since its release. But in comparison to its longest-standing competitors, such as the likes of WordPress and Joomla, its security vulnerabilities have been few and far between.
