Benefits of Magento Security Patch 2.2.1, 2.0.17, and 2.1.10 Update

With this update, you can expect a variety of enhancements that will fix various issues including the following:

  • Susceptibilities with arbitrary delete files
  • XSS

  • LFI

Security enhancements prevent limited-privileged admins from bypassing security mechanisms and then obtaining unauthorized data, applications, services, networks and/or devices. Such admins can also no longer preform certain high-risk and medium-risk actions.
