On Wednesdays of each week Drupal sends out security updates and patches. Our web developers receive and evaluate these as they come in to make sure we act on any that affect our environment. There were a number of issues this week below is a list of those that affect our environment and what steps have been taken or are in progress. This is just an example of all the “behind the scenes” activates that take place constantly to keep our websites updated and secure. (This is just a small example, many more maintenance and development things happen every day.)
Overlay - There is a security update to the Overlay. This largely does not affect us because we disabled the overlay for other reasons previously. It was still enabled on the county sites however. The web developers fixed a dependency problem on the county sites and disabled the overlay everywhere else.
JQuery Update - The jQuery update module allows us to switch between versions of jQuery as needed. There was also a security update in the jQuery Update module an upgrade was performed.
CCK(D6) - The CCK is a module that helped in creation of custom fields in D6. There was a security update to this module and it was updated. This also required an update to the EPN Core.
