Drupal security update: Wunder clients safe and sound

29 March 2018

We are happy to announce that the highly important Drupal core security update “SA-CORE-2018-002” has been carried out successfully at Wunder: All our clients’ websites are patched and secure.

Our secret? Excellent preparation.

Last Wednesday (21st March 2018), the Drupal Security Team shook the community when they announced that a major security update is to be rolled out on the evening of Wednesday 28th March. Some even started nicknaming the update “Drupalgeddon 2.0” due to the resemblance to a highly critical security update in 2014.

Our team of Wunderers in charge stayed calm and immediately went into preparation mode. An internal plan of action was released soon after to make sure that the update could be applied as fast as possible to provide maximum security to our clients. Several Wunderers along our dedicated security team took responsibility over services to make sure we get them updated quickly.

Our team? Dedicated and fast.

So when update night rolled around, our team knew exactly what to do: Updating and applying hotfixes to our clients’ sites was executed in the smoothest way possible. To give you some numbers: More than 130 different websites were done in about 3 hours!

Shoutout to the team: You rock!

None of this would have been possible without our exceptional team of Wunderers who worked tirelessly to ensure that all client projects received the security update as fast as possible. Huge thanks for your outstanding performance and excellent work!

Special thanks go to those members of our team who were part of the task force that kept our client's applications safe and sound yesterday:
