Orome1 writes: A whole year has passed since a critical e-shop hijacking flaw in the Magento CMS has been patched, but the vulnerability is still being exploited in attacks in the wild, warns Sucuri researcher Denis Sinegubko. At the time, the Magento development team pushed out a patch (SUPEE-5344) but after two whole months, 98,000 online merchants still hadn't implemented it. This forced the team to send out email alerts directly to the users, urging them to apply the patch immediately. Obviously, even that was not enough. Attackers are still actively deploying malware that exploits the vulnerability to inject malicious code into the Magento core file.
