Last night, the PrestaShop’s official website, prestashop.com, was hacked, resulting in the misappropriation of a script intended for transcribing news information in the Back Office of PrestaShop stores.
The entire PrestaShop team dedicated ourselves to identifying and fixing this issue as quickly as possible. That fix has been completed.
This only affects PrestaShop versions 1.4/1.4.1/1.4.2/1.4.3/1.4.4, but not all shops using these versions are necessarily affected
If you use one of these versions, please check for any of the following symptoms:
If you fulfill one of these conditions, your shop may have been infected. However, it is easy to fix just by following the instructions listed below.
As a preventive measure, we recommend you to apply this fix even if your shop has not been affected.
The whole PrestaShop team wants to deeply thank the community for its help in identifying this issue.
