Hi @oren

 

A) If you are a technical user then you should download the security patch for your Magento version and apply it.
Otherwise you should take help from a developer.

 

B) These messages are to inform you about latest news, features and release by magento.
So there will not be any change in color.

 

C) If you upgrade to latest version 1.9.2.3 you will get all the patches with it.

Hi @oren

 

Please refer this official link for detailed instructions Installing Magento Patches.

 

Basically there are 3 methods to install a Magento patch.

1) Using SSH

2) By running a script.

3) By uploading  pre-patched files.

 

I personally use SSH method. Second method may not work for you if your hosting provider has blocked some php commands from running like 

  • exec
  • passthru
  • shell_exec
  • system,
  • proc_open
  • popen
  • curl_exec
  • curl_multi_exec
  • parse_ini_file
  • show_source

I am explaining SSH method to install the patch.

 

1) First download the patch file applicable to your magento version

2) Disable the compilation if enabled.

3) Open the patch file and just go through the file changes (Not mandatory, I personally do it.)

4) If you have files overridden in your app/code/local/Mage then check if that file is being patched in code module by the patch (Step 3 helps in this)

5) Place the patch file in the Magento root

6) Now login to your Magento  using SSH and got to your magento installation directory.

7) Run the following command   sh patchfilename.sh   command.

example:  sh PATCH_SUPEE-6482_CE_1.4.1.1_v1-2015-08-03-06-55-48.sh

 

 

You should see a message Patch was applied/reverted successfully.

 

Feel free to reply if you seek help.
