Magento EE 2.1.7 Release Notes

Release date: May 31, 2017

Page updated: June 1, 2017

We are pleased to present Magento Enterprise Edition 2.1.7. This release includes important enhancements to the security of your Magento software.

While there are no confirmed attacks related to these vulnerabilities to date, certain vulnerabilities can potentially be exploited to access customer information or take over administrator sessions. We recommend that you upgrade your existing Magento software to the latest version as soon as possible.

Highlights

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. Unfortunately, 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.

Currently installed Magento version Upgrade to ... Additional actions

2.1.6 with image resizing hot fix (CE-MAGETWO-67805.patch and EE-MAGETWO-67805.patch) 2.1.7
  1. Delete the image resizing patch before upgrading to 2.1.7.
  2. After upgrading, run the bin/magento catalog:images:resize command.

Note: As of June 30, 2017, MasterCard may fine merchants who do not support cards that use their recently expanded range of BIN numbers. Transactions for customers that use cards with these new BINs will fail if your software does not support these new BIN numbers. MasterCard describes the issue here. If you are running Magento 2.1.3 or later, your Magento software already provides support for these new BINs.
