What's New in Drupal 8.5.9
- Drupal core - Third Party Libraries - SA-CORE-2019-001 - Drupal core uses the third-party PEAR Archive_Tar library. This library has released a security update which impacts some Drupal configurations. Refer to CVE-2018-1000888 for details.
- Drupal core - Arbitrary PHP code execution - SA-CORE-2019-002 - Some Drupal code (core, contrib, and custom) may be performing file operations on insufficiently validated user input, thereby being exposed to a remote code execution vulnerability which exists in PHP's built-in phar stream wrapper when performing file operations on an untrusted phar:// URI. This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that such code paths typically require access to an administrative permission or an atypical configuration.
