Whenever Magento finds vulnerabilities with the system, it releases small pieces of code – also known as security patches to take care of them. It is always a good idea to install the security patches released by Magento as soon as you get to know about them. This is because the more you delay the installation of these patches the more you increase the chances of making your store vulnerable to security risks.
As soon as these patches are released and the problems are highlighted, the issues are discussed by developers on different communities and forums. Sometimes, it also proves to be a useful hint for the hackers who wouldn’t have known about it otherwise.
