According Byte is 80 percent of the 200,000 on Magento based webhops worldwide due to a lack of updates. That the hoster examined with a proprietary tool that checks the system for vulnerabilities / The web host also refers to a tool which webshop owners can check whether they belong to the vulnerable web shops.

In a statement to Byte Magento says that it recognizes that the update is a problem. “While the flexibility of our platform prevents us to automatically distribute patches, we always work to inform affected webhopeigenaren and to let them apply patches as soon as possible.”
