What is a security patch?
A security patch is a bundle of updated and modified core files that work to fix specific security issues that have been discovered by Magento developers. It is a well-known fact that the latest versions already have the security fixes installed, so if you are running off the latest version then you can rest assured your eCommerce store is not open to many vulnerabilities. However, if you are not running on the latest version it is extremely wise to apply any available patches to your shop as you could be faced with critical security problems and your online shop may not be secure.
How can I check if my online store is secure?
- Our Magento support and help specialists have tools that we can run your shop through to check if all of the available patches have been applied or if you have any common security issues that need addressing.
- It is always advised and cannot be stressed enough that every online shop should ensure their patches are applied and all security issues are resolved and up to date because if your site becomes vulnerable then it can easily get in to the wrong hands.
What other things can I do to ensure my shop is secure?
Our security specialists advise the following:
- It is best practice to have our team run a security audit at least every quarter or even once a month for larger eCommerce shops. If you have any new extensions installed or make any changes to your website, it is worth regularly having us perform a quick security audit to make sure there are no vulnerabilities.
- Ensure you reset your admin and any other passwords that gain access to your shop at least every quarter or sooner for larger stores, especially if you have shared your shop access details with anyone.
How can my store be hacked?
Like desktop computers hackers can run a malicious code through your online shop to gain access to the backend area so they can create fake user admin accounts to control your store. Here are some examples that could mean you online store has been hacked and immediate action is required to secure it, and this is where you need to contact our security team for help ASAP.
- “Your site has been Hacked” warning on search engines.
- You may see uncharacteristic behaviour on the checkout page when running a test order.
- You may notice spam keywords and links on your product listings and your other pages.
- You may get notified from your hosting company that they are suspending your Magento shop due to malicious activities.
- A change to files and folders within your database.
- You may spot changes to the Magento core.
- You will see unfamiliar session and admin users in the Magento backend.
