Just going through the following update received today.
Google is making files more secure by adding resource key in shared items and sending alerts to almost all orgs with the count of affected files, users, etc.
But we need to know the affected files and their owners, is there any way to get affected files and owners with respect to the alert? Also if this would have any impact on existing Google App Script, 3rd party apps, etc.
I am not sure if we can get these files using GAM/GAMADVX using some kind of filters.
Any recommendations would be beneficial.

It does feel as if this has come out of the blue today. We are looking at it in two ways.
I will follow this thread with interest.
as i understand it, the files affected are files that are shared with domain or anyone, which you should be able to scan using Drive API (GAMADV-XTD3, etc.). However, as for actual impact.. nobody really knows. What’s unclear at this time is if files shared with target audience is affected, as they are actually files shared with domain which Google creates for you.
As others have already said - it’s pretty unclear at this point. All we have heard is what is linked above, plus the email notification. As our admin said ‘looks like this is going to be fun’:
This community is really helpful. We got to know details from experts with just small posts and healthy way to share knowledge.
Thank you all for your responses. After seeing replies it gave me more confidence on my thought that Google had really not shared more details about the security update.
Let's see how it goes.
sharing GAM command that I’ve been working on.
GAMADV-XTD3 6.04.16 or higher required.
gam config csv_output_row_filter "'linkShareMetadata.securityUpdateEligible:boolean:true'" auto_batch_min 1 redirect csv - multiprocess todrive all users print filelist fields id,title,permissions,owners.emailaddress,resourcekey,linksharemetadata,mimetype query "visibility='anyoneWithLink'"
Still working on Shared Drives just so I can verify the information that Google provided with output from GAM.
