Upgrading to Magento 2.0.6

Magento released Magento Enterprise Edition and Community Edition 2.0.6, with important functional improvements. Now Redis can be used for session storage and a file permission issue is fixed. In addition to this, a flexible way is also provided to set file ownership. All the detailed information about the functional enhancement is included in the Enterprise and Community Edition release notes.

Security Improvements in Magento 2.0.6

Additionally, this release has the following security improvements:

– Unauthorized users will not be able to remotely execute malicious code on the server using the REST or SOAP API calls

– Remote triggering of a site that reinstalls itself for the attacker to potentially take control over it, is no longer allowed

– No authenticated customer will be able to make changes to the accounts of other customers with the SOAP or REST API calls.

– Previous vulnerability with cross-site scripting in the Authorize.net payment module is fully resolved.

– Detailed information about the security updates is available on the Magento Security Center.
