New minor releases of each supported branch of Moodle are now available. The unscheduled release is due to a security threat which was identified recently. According to the announcement,

Moodle 2.8.3, 2.7.5 and 2.6.8 are now available via the usual open download channels: https://download.moodle.org or Git.

In addition to a number of bug fixes and small improvements, a very serious security vulnerability have been discovered and fixed.
