Blog Post created by Rich Green Employee on Nov 15, 2018

SugarCRM has released version 7.9.5 for all editions. The 7.9.5 release is available for download to On-Premise customers and has automatically been applied to 7.9 customers in the SugarCloud environment. This latest release addresses issues identified in prior releases of Sugar and includes important security updates. At SugarCRM, we consider data security and the protection of your private information our highest priority. We have recently detected security vulnerabilities and, to minimize potential risks, those issues have been investigated and addressed in this updated release. 

 

For more information regarding the specific advisories, please refer to the following Security Advisory announcements:

 

Following our investigations, we have no indication that the vulnerabilities were exploited. Administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their Sugar instances running 7.9.4 and prior to version 7.9.5 or 8.0.2 to prevent potential exploitation of these weaknesses.

 

SugarCloud Customers

If you are hosted in the SugarCloud, no action is required as these vulnerabilities and bugs have been patched in the cloud environment. If you have additional questions related to how your instance has been affected, please open a case with our support team.

 

On-Premise Customers

If you host your instance On-Premise (in any environment outside of the SugarCloud environment), please carefully review the following instructions and take the actions outlined below at the earliest opportunity. Failure to take these actions could leave you exposed to malicious attacks:

 

Version 7.9.x

Please visit our Download Manager to download the latest patch for your release, 7.9.5, which address these vulnerabilities. Our Installation and Upgrade Guide contains the appropriate guidance to apply these patches to your instance.

 

Version 7.8.x or below

Please visit our Download Manager to download 7.9.5, which address these vulnerabilities as versions 7.8 and below are no longer supported. Our Installation and Upgrade Guide contains the appropriate guidance to apply these updates to your instance.

 

If upgrading now is not an option, please open a case with our support team to request a hotfix for the security vulnerabilities. We will then supply a module loadable package that can be applied to your current version and edition of Sugar. Please note that we will only supply hotfixes for supported versions.
