- How to upgrade only core with drush? 3 answers
What is the best way to get Drupal to automatically perform security updates? And are people commonly employing such a method?
...You should proceed under the assumption that every Drupal 7 website was compromised unless updated or patched before Oct 15th, 11pm UTC, that is 7 hours after the announcement.
Fortunately I caught this one and performed the update manually one hour after the announcement. But what if I hadn't? I'd like to have an automatic update process in place to give me some piece of mind.
And I'd like for this automatic upgrade system to only apply security updates. (It just doesn't seem worth the risk to bother with potentially breaking some functionality after an update, unless the update is critical.)
