Magento Security Patch SUPEE-6788

Magento has released a security patch, SUPEE-6788, for Magento CE versions less than 1.9.2.2. While it is important to implement this security patch as soon as possible, it should be understood that this security patch will break backward compatibility with various extensions and customizations. It is important to test this patch on a non-production installation and correct issues before implementing the patch on a live installation of Magento. The SUPEE-6788 patch files can be obtained directly on Magento’s website at https://www.magentocommerce.com/download or by upgrading your installation to Magento CE 1.9.2.2. Please make sure you create complete file and database backups prior to making any changes to your website. It is also recommended that you don’t implement Magento patches and upgrades on live sites as downtime can occur. Please contact us with any questions!
