Magento security patch irritation

Hello,

 

it's the first time I've installed Magento 1.9.2.2 under XAMPP for Windows. As soon as I am familiar with Magento I'll install it on my webserver.

 

The inbox in my backend tells me some critical messages and recommends to install security patches. That irritates me a bit. But now I've some generell questions:

 

  1. On https://www.magentocommerce.com/download I read: "Includes patches: SUPEE-5344, SUPEE-5994, SUPEE-6237, SUPEE-6285, SUPEE-6482, SUPEE-678". Why do I get this critical messages? Can I ignore them?
  2. For the case I shouldn't ignore them, do I have to install all recommended security patches? The oldest patch at first up to the youngest patch?

Thanks in advance,

Renate

 

P.S. I hope my english is fine enough. I'm from Germany.

Hi @Renate1955

 

Magento 1.9.2.2 is the latest release by Magento and it includes all the security patches. 

You need not to apply any other patches to this version.

Magento send the messages too keep the merchants alert about new patches and other useful information.

Hi @Renate1955, welcome to the Magento community! As @muk_t mentioned, those messages are sent to all Magento instances. They're not based on your current version or configuration. 1.9.2.2 does contain all latest security patches at this point.
