Magento Security Announcement Reminder: SUPEE 9767

Magento has released a new patch that covers critical vulnerabilities.
Attackers are disabling a configuration protection after gaining admin access and are uploading malicious code.  Use of the AllowSymlinks option in configuration settings can enable the upload of an image that contains malicious code. Although this option is disabled by default, an attacker with access to store configuration settings can enable it and remotely execute code.

As always, install the patch in a development environment and test before applying it to your live site.

If you need any assistance with security patch updates, please send an email to: magento@eboundhost.com or contact your Account Manager at eBoundHost.

For your convenience, we have quoted some of the announcement from Magento’s Forum below.  Read the rest on the Magento site.

Today, Magento is releasing new updates to increase product security and functionality. The releases contain over 15 security enhancements and Magento 2.x updates that also address image resizing and MasterCard BIN number expansion. We strongly recommend that all merchants upgrade to these versions as soon as is reasonably possible.

 

These releases include:

 

 

  • Support for MasterCard BIN number expansion. MasterCard recently added a new series of Bank Identification Numbers (BIN). While certain Magento versions already support the new BINs, merchants using the following versions must upgrade or apply a patch by June 30, 2017 or face potential fines from MasterCard and lost sales:
    • Enterprise and Community Edition 2.1.2 or earlier
    • All Enterprise and Community Edition 2.0.x releases
    • Enterprise Edition 1.14.2.x or earlier releases
    • Community Edition 1.9.2.x or earlier releases

 

More information is available at MasterCard BIN Range Update.

 

  • Reversion of the changes to image resizing that we introduced in Magento 2.1.6. Certain image resizing changes introduced unanticipated problems. We have reverted these changes in this release, and will provide improvements to image resizing in a future product update. See the Magento 2.1.7 Enterprise Edition Release Notes for additional information you may need to take when upgrading from Magento 2.1.6 or 2.1.5 to this release.

 

Download and install the Enterprise Edition updates by logging into My Account and navigating to the version you want to download. Community Edition software is available in the Release Archive of the Community Edition download page.

 

(See How to get the Magento software for a discussion of Magento 2.x installation procedures, and How to Apply and Revert Magento Patches for Magento 1.x instructions.)

Please refer to SECURITY BEST PRACTICES for additional information on how to secure your site.

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.

Gary Hutchison

Excellent response to questions and issues. Fabulous uptimes. Personable tech support.

Lisa Cowan

eBoundHost is the best. I have dealt with many hosting providers over the last 10 years. eBoundHost surpasses them all. Absolutely the highest level of quality service anywhere. Do yourself a big favor and sign on with eBoundHost.

Dave "Infodave" Beightol

Every time I have contacted my host provider. They have responded with speed, courtesy and accuracy they are professional and a joy to work with.

P. LaGambina

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.

Paul

I waited to write a review until I had absolutely everything working, thinking that something would come up that eboundhost couldn't solve almost immediately. I've never been so happy to be wrong - their customer support is just incredible.

Shannon I

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.

Bart W

Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.

Jerry Stark

No better web host on the market! Support is second to none.

Roger Hamilton

I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.

Jason Maggard

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!!!

S. Gino

Awesome Service And Excellent Customer Service!

Cory Farbman

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.

Jason M

GREAT customer service and tech support, with professional, yet personable service.

J. Bitner

There is not a place on this Planet that you can get better service, support or hosting!

Pat

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.

EG Pursley

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.

Jindrich Radic

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.

Ahmed Hussein

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.
