We are pleased to present Magento Open Source (formerly Community Edition) 2.1.7. This release includes critical enhancements to the security of your Magento software.
Looking for the Magento Commerce (Cloud) Release Notes?
Magento 2.1.7 contains over 15 security enhancements as well as one significant functional enhancement. Look for the following highlights in this release:
- Resolution of multiple high priority and critical security issues. These critical issues include remote code execution for authenticated Admin users, access control bypass, and cross-site request forgery issues. See Magento 2.0.14 and 2.1.7 Security Patches for a comprehensive discussion of these issues.
- Reversion of the changes to image resizing that we introduced in 2.1.6. Certain image resizing changes introduced unanticipated problems. We have reverted these changes in this release, and will provide improvements to image resizing in a future product update.
