By conducting a Magento security audit, businesses can proactively detect and address security gaps, protect sensitive customer data, maintain website uptime, and safeguard their reputation. This service is essential to ensure a robust and secure e-commerce platform, providing store owners and their customers peace of mind.

What’s included in the Magento security audit by Mageplaza?

Platform version & patches review

We’ll thoroughly review the version of Magento that your website is currently running on. Running the latest stable version of Magento is crucial as it contains vital security updates and bug fixes.

The audit team will check whether your platform is up-to-date and assess whether all the necessary security patches have been applied. Outdated versions and missing patches can leave your site vulnerable to known exploits, making it imperative to ensure that your Magento installation is equipped with the latest security updates to protect against potential threats.

Typical platform backdoor review

Backdoors are malicious entry points that attackers can exploit to gain unauthorized access to your Magento store.

To safeguard your website from unauthorized access and data breaches, the security audit will conduct a thorough search for any suspicious code or hidden scripts that could serve as potential backdoors. Detecting and eliminating backdoors is critical for maintaining a secure online environment and safeguarding sensitive customer data.

Environment stack & connection review

The audit will assess the entire technology stack that your Magento website relies on, including the web server, database server, and other components.

Each element's configurations and connections will be analyzed to ensure they meet security best practices. The security audit team will verify that secure protocols (such as HTTPS) are in use and that communication between various components is encrypted and protected. Any misconfigurations or weaknesses in the environment stack will be identified and addressed to minimize potential vulnerabilities.

Production server review

The production server is the heart of your live website and a prime target for attackers. To safeguard your e-commerce platform, the security audit will comprehensively review the server's security settings, permissions, and access controls.

This assessment helps ensure that only authorized personnel have access to critical files and resources, reducing the risk of unauthorized access and potentially malicious activities on your production server.

Plugin & extension review

One of Magento's greatest strengths is its extensibility through plugins and extensions. However, poorly coded or outdated extensions can become a point of weakness for your website's security.

During the audit, all installed plugins and extensions will be thoroughly reviewed to ensure they originate from reputable sources and are up-to-date with the latest security patches. Any insecure or unnecessary extensions will be identified and recommended for removal or replacement, reducing the attack surface of your Magento store.

Connectivity, error, and performance logs

Connectivity logs provide valuable insights into who is accessing your website and when, helping to detect any unusual connection attempts or patterns that could indicate suspicious activity. Error logs can reveal potential security weaknesses or misconfigurations that may be exploitable.

Additionally, analyzing performance logs offers insights into any unusual resource usage or load patterns that might indicate malicious activities or attempted breaches. By closely examining these logs, the security audit can identify and address potential security issues before they escalate into major threats.

PHP & MySQL configuration review

Properly configuring PHP and MySQL is crucial for a secure Magento installation. During the audit, the team will review the PHP configuration settings to ensure they adhere to security best practices and that the recommended security modules are enabled.

Similarly, the MySQL database will be examined to ensure it is properly secured, with appropriate access controls and minimal exposure to potential risks.

CureIT or Sansec scan

As an additional layer of protection, integrating a CureIT or SanSec scan into the audit process provides a comprehensive and automated security check.

These reputable security scanning tools can help detect and address various types of malware, vulnerabilities, or indicators of compromise that might not be immediately evident through manual inspection. The scan results can provide valuable insights into potential risks that require attention.
