Magento and CMS Patches
Posted by Anthony Hogbin on 27 January 2016 11:21 AM

Magento is the fourth most popular CMS platform with roughly three percent of the market behind WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. It is also primarily geared towards ecommerce.

In the last week two major vulnerabilities were announced and patched, including one that allowed the insertion of script into email addresses when signing up.

Wordpress, Joomla, DrupalMagento are all excellent platforms, and professionally maintained by the providers. Such updates are indicative of this - a proactive approach to fixing issues and disclosure. It is however exceptionally important that you keep on top of these patches as part of your daily security regime. While we appreciate the worry of patching can be a rock and a hard place affair - a site that is down is usually preferable to compromised - with leaked data, infecting others, or being used to attack other sites or spam in your name.

If you have any questions - do not hesitate to get in contact with support@hostinguk.net or give us a call.
