Magento has ended the support for Magento 1 on June 30, 2020.
There was panic among the Magento 1 store owners with the store’s security concern. Following to this panic and security concern, Meetanshi partnered with Mage One to support Magento 1 store merchants after M1 EOL.
Mage One offers patches for:
- Security Vulnerabilities of Magento 1 Community Edition Core Code
- incompatibilities due to new PHP versions
- incompatibilities due to new Server or MySQL versions
Though it is recommended to migrate to Magento 2 and leverage the benefits of the latest Magento 2 version, for time being, when you are planning the migration process, opting for these security patches is a wise decision.
Mage One has released the MO-14 patch that prevents the parallel logins for the same user account, i.e., session attack for backend and frontend.
Install MO-14 patch by Mage One in Magento 1 store with the method given here or hire a certified Magento developer as recommended by Mage One as they have sufficient experience to patch corresponding files of your customization.
Steps to Install MO-14 Patch by Mage-One in Magento:
It is highly recommended to take a database backup before the installation process. You can use a file versioning software like Git.
Also, first of all, install the MO-14 patch in the staging environment. Once tested, the changes can be installed live with the help of the versioning software.
The MO-14 patch can be applied locally or in the staging environment, then committed and pushed normally.
Now, follow these steps:
- Upload the local file into the
<Magento_root>on the server using SFTP, SSH or your normal transport method.
- Verify if the file is in the correct directory or not.
- Run the below commands according to the patch extension in the command line interface:
$ patch -p1 < /path/to/file
- Refresh cache by logging in to the admin panel and navigate to System > Cache Management for the changes to be reflected in the user interface. If required, renew the indices.
If you want to revert the patch, run this command:
$ patch -R -p1 < /path/to/file
