What's New in Magento 2.1.7
Magento 2.1.7 contains over 15 security enhancements as well as critical enhancements to the security of your Magento software.
- Support for MasterCard BIN number expansion. MasterCard recently added a new series of Bank Identification Numbers (BIN), and this release of Magento provides support for transactions made with cards using these new BINs. MasterCard describes the issue here.
- Resolution of multiple high priority and critical security issues. These critical issues include remote code execution for authenticated Admin users, access control bypass, and cross-site request forgery issues. See Magento 2.0.14 and 2.1.7 Security Patches for a comprehensive discussion of these issues.
- Reversion of the changes to image resizing that we introduced in 2.1.6. Certain image resizing changes introduced unanticipated problems. We have reverted these changes in this release, and will provide improvements to image resizing in a future product update.
