IMPORTANT: Issues with New Security Patch!
Today, Magento has released new security patch called SUPEE-6788, available as a part of Enterprise Edition 188.8.131.52 and Community Edition 184.108.40.206. The patch fixes a number of store security issues, which is why it is highly recommended you install it. But, at the same time, it has a routing issue that breaks backward compatibility, which may impact your extensions and customizations.
For the purposes of compatibility, the new routing piece is disabled upon installation. You can enable it manually by changing the routing compatibility mode under System > Configuration > Admin > Security.
How do you know there is an issue?
Once new routing is enabled, you may encounter a “404 Not Found” page when visiting some of your extensions. In this case, you may go back to configuration and change the routing settings until your extension provider has those compatibility issues fixed.
Alternatively, you may simply take a look at the current extension url to know if it’s going to work properly:
shop.com/extension – will not work
shop.com/admin/extension – will work
Which extensions have been affected?
There are some compilations online that list all affected extensions from different developers. There is no way of knowing if they are up to date, so the link we provide will not necessarily reflect the current situation.
What about aheadWorks extensions?
A number of our extensions has been affected, but all of them are already fixed and tested by our team.
How will you get the fixed version?
We will notify you via both email and admin feed that the extension is fixed. Once you receive the message, you’ll have access to a free patch together with the latest version of our extension, also free. Please note that it will not reactivate your support period, which means that for any arising issues you’ll have to have an active support period.
