I use Drush 8.1.17 to update my Drupal 7 sites, and as I have been updating my sites today after the latest security update I have noticed that after I update a site if I try to run any update related command (ex: drush up -n | grep available) I get this error:

The external command could not be executed due to an application error.                                      [error]
The command could not be executed successfully (returned: PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught                         [error]

Does anyone know why this error only appeared after I updated the site and how I can fix it?

It looks like they just released Drupal 7.63 and in the release notes they say, "This is a hotfix release for a regression affecting some Drush installations that was introduced by the fix for SA-CORE-2019-002. No other fixes are included."
