Magento Commerce and Open Source 2.2.5 and 2.1.14 contain multiple security enhancements that help close authenticated Admin user remote code execution (RCE), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and other vulnerabilities. Merchants who have not previously downloaded a Magento 2 release should go straight to Magento Commerce or Open Source 2.2.5.
As always, install the patch in a development environment and test before applying it to your live site. Please refer to Security Best Practices for additional information how to secure your site.
For your convenience, we have quoted some of the announcement from Magento’s Forum down below. If you need any assistance with security patch updates, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your Account Manager at eBoundHost.

From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!
eBoundHost is really the best hosting service in today's marketplace. Fast and efficient customer service with excellent IT knowledge. Good price and many bundled extra options. Highly recommended!
I'm Stan Bogdashin, a customer of your hosting company for the past 2 years. Our company provides web design, development and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services. Want to thank you for helping us by providing great hosting seamless support - this is why I continue to recommend you and don't use anyone else for hosting!
eBoundHost.com has been a dream to work with. My questions are answered in minutes, the price is very reasonable, the interface is great, I am very happy with how smooth everything works.
We at Alico have 4 domain names which we started subscribing at eBoundHost since more than 4 years. In brief they are the best webhosting provider with a sexy Control Panel and perfect fast response support.
Fast, reliable, full of features... Over the years, I have used more than a dozen hosts, both the big ones and smaller ones; eBoundHost.com is by far my favorite.
1) Their technical support people are always available to help with questions. 2)Server and network speed excellent. 3)Everything works great. 4)I highly recommend them!!!Thank you.
eBoundHost.com has the best customer service in ANY industry. Their support staff answers phone calls and emails immediately and they have time and time again gone over and above their responsibilities to make sure I am taken care of and that my clients are happy. I have many websites hosted here from small business to corporate level and have dealt with many hosting companies in the industry and eBoundHost.com is by far the BEST hosting provider there is. Great prices, great service, great hosting packages, and a killer reseller program! THANK YOU AGAIN :)
Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.
I came to eBoundHost after a very bad experience with a so called "big boy" - you know one of those places you are only a number. I have been a satisfied customer for more than 4 years now. The support is second to none.
I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
Every time I call with a problem or question, Everyone, especially Denis has always stepped up to the occasion. As usual he solved yet another problem I had. You have a superlative customer service. It doesn't get any better. Keep it up guys.
Cost, technical support and promptness of return calls are of paramount importance to me since most of my work is done on the road and waiting for a reply is frustrating. eBoundHost has been a pleasure to work with friendly, courteous and professional.
SUPER SUPPORT - even during "off hours" - Sundays & holidays. Responses have always been within minutes of the initial call or email. The BEST vendor I have ever used in my 10 plus years as a webhosting services consumer.
I was just looking over our emails and adding up how much time you guys have taken to get me squared away with my new eboundhost account. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have fast, dependable hosting and the kind of immediate support I've gotten from you, after having struggled with a sub-standard host for years. eboundhost has, in the short time I've been with you, already saved me hundreds of dollars of billable time. My thanks.
Reliability and customer service that is rare and refreshing. We have been using eBoundHost for several years and unlike many companies who's service wanes over the years, the staff at eBound has consistently delivered top notch performance. Bravo!
