Drupal Hacked

Blog Post

No, it's not a Halloween story, but it is indeed scary.  Drupal , the content management system powering over a billion websites, has been hacked.

Up to 12 million websites are at risk of having been hacked due to a vulnerability in the seventh version of the software.  The vulnerability allows hackers to take control of the website.  It's serious enough that Drupal said anyone who didn't apply their most recent update should assume that their website has been compromised, and applying the latest patch now may not be enough to secure websites run by the popular CMS, as hackers often build hidden backdoors to keep control of infected websites.
