Below are the five most common security risks you should be aware of when using a Magento site:
Each Magento website update comes with security fixes as well as bug patches that resolve freshly-discovered vulnerabilities. When you don't update your website regularly, you leave an open door for cyberattacks.
Have a strong password
The fastest way for cybercriminals to breach your Magento store's security is by cracking your login password. To ensure this does not happen, implement these secure password practices:. In case of a security breach, hackers could use your password across multiple accounts, increasing the severity of the attack. To lower your vulnerability, ensure you have different passwords on different accounts.
A Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a form of digital certificate that helps authenticate the identity of a website and ensure an encrypted connection. The SSL certificate also develops an encrypted link between a web browser and the server, securing online transactions and protecting critical customer details.
Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) could be programs or physical devices that monitor traffic, assess the data, and determine the next steps to take. They also watch over HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) requests, looking for patterns synonymous with known cyberattacks. They can block several web application attacks, including RCE, XSS, as well as SQL injection.
