I got the notification "It is critical for you to download and install 2 previously-released security patches (SUPEE-5344 and SUPEE-1533) from the Magento Community Edition download page (https://www.magentocommerce.com/products/downloads/magento/). Please do this immediately, as Check Point Software Technologies has published a technical description of how they discovered the issue, which we feel might serve as a tutorial for implementing an attack against your website.".
Actually I have installed them last week.
Can I ignore the notificaiton?
And how can I check if I installed successfully?
If I have installed successfully, will I still get the relative notifications?
Discussed in the following threads
Hi @anita01021989, as @chiefair mentioned this has been discussed at great lengths in those threads. That being said, you can check your site at http://magento.com/security-patch to see if your site is vulnerable and also to read signs of a compromised site. The admin notifications can be cleared by reading them. They are there to tell you about the patch, but they are not based on whether or not you have already patched.
So if my site passes the "bug check" dose that mean i do not have to worry about the patch?
Hi @dangousa! If the site shows you're not vulnerable then you should be good, but unless you're on 126.96.36.199 or 1.14.2 you should've needed to apply the patch. Double check the list of signs of a compromised site at magento.com/security-patch to be safe.
Thank you for your help! it was much appreciated!
I have another question, is the new (supee 6285) patch required for the Version 188.8.131.52?
THanks for the info @sherrie is, do you know if there is a site to do a vulnerablity check for this update? similar to the one for the shoplift bug?
There is not.
You can check
applied.patches.list in the
app/etc/ directory to see which patches have been successfully applied. Alternatively @philwinkle has built a free extension to display all applied patches in the admin: https://github.com/philwinkle/Philwinkle_AppliedPatches
