Project: 
Date: 
2019-May-08
Vulnerability: 
Third-party libraries
Description: 

This security release fixes third-party dependencies included in or required by Drupal core. As described in TYPO3-PSA-2019-007: By-passing protection of Phar Stream Wrapper Interceptor:

In order to intercept file invocations like file_exists or stat on compromised Phar archives the base name has to be determined and checked before allowing to be handled by PHP Phar stream handling. […]

The current implementation is vulnerable to path traversal leading to scenarios where the Phar archive to be assessed is not the actual (compromised) file.

Solution: 

Install the latest version:

Versions of Drupal 8 prior to 8.6.x are end-of-life and do not receive security coverage.
