Why Should I Care?
Without applying the patch or updating to the latest version, your store will be vulnerable to at least four different known attacks. Remaining vulnerable may result in a breach of security which could involve a denial of service to your customers, the potential loss your of your customer’s private data, and/or a loss of revenue while your store is taken offline to remedy the attack. Your customers may also lose trust and confidence in your store if they feel that you are not protecting their information safely.
