With a highly critical vulnerability found Drupal 7 versions prior to 7.32 and with Drupal providing data on usage of various versions, a good opportunity to see at what speed websites are being updated when there is a pressing need to do so is available now. Last week we found that in the first week only 12.46% of Drupal 7 websites had been updated to Drupal 7.32. In the second week it has now increased to 23.77%. We should note that it is possible to patch the vulnerability without doing a full upgrade, so not all websites that have not been upgraded are necessarily vulnerable at this point.
Drupal 7.32 usage has now surpassed to 7.31 usage, which was also a security update. What is rather troubling is that 59.28% of Drupal 7 websites haven’t been updated to at least 7.31 despite it being released nearly three months ago.
For those in need of an upgrade we provide one time Drupal upgrades and ongoing upgrades for Drupal 7 (with security updates in a day). You can use our Drupal Version Check chrome extension and Up to Date? Chrome app to keep track of the update status of Drupal websites you manage.
