Almost 240,000 Magento Online Stores Reaches EOL 2020


Almost 240,000 Magento online stores reaches EOL 2020.

Many online store owners will need to upgrade, their backends in the coming nine months, if they want to avoid getting hacked.

As of June 2020, next year, the Magento 1.x branch is scheduled to reach End-of-Life (EOL) and won't receive security updates anymore.

Almost 240,000 Magento online stores reaches EOL 2020.

The number of impacted online stores is currently estimated to be between 200,000 and 240,000, according to different statistics sources.

Site owners will need to migrate to the latest Magento version, the 2.x branch, where they can still receive security patches on a regular basis.

Seeing as Magecart groups are very active, your company should plan ahead, before something bad happens.

Magento is, by far, today's most popular technology for hosting an online store. It launched in 2007 and quickly rose through the ranks due to superior features and customizability options.

In 2015, Magento 2.0 was released, an upgrade that was a total re-write and architectural re-design from the previous version.

Due to the large amount of breaking changes between the two versions, many store owners did not upgrade to the newer 2.x branch, choosing to stay on the older release and avoid breakage or prolonged downtime -- which is a pretty common practice in the webdev community.

Statistics gathered by HostingTribunal in February 2019 found over 250,00 online stores using Magento, of which only 11,000 were believed to be running the newer 2.x release.
