What's New in Drupal 8.8.1
This release fixes security vulnerabilities. Sites are urged to upgrade immediately.
- Moderately critical - Denial of Service - SA-CORE-2019-009 - A visit to install.php can cause cached data to become corrupted. This could cause a site to be impaired until caches are rebuilt.

- Moderately critical - Access bypass - SA-CORE-2019-011 - The Media Library module has a security vulnerability whereby it doesn't sufficiently restrict access to media items in certain configurations.
- Critical - Multiple vulnerabilities - SA-CORE-2019-012 - The Drupal project uses the third-party library Archive_Tar, which has released a security update that impacts some Drupal configurations.
