Adobe recently released Magento Commerce and Open Source 2.3.2, 2.2.9, and 2.1.18 with 75 security enhancements to help close RCE (Remote Code Execution), XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) and other vulnerabilities.
Merchants who have not upgrade to Magento 2 release yet must go straight to Magento Commerce or Open Source 2.3.2 as the Magento 2.1.18 release marks the last supported software release for Magento 2.1.x version. This version will no longer receive any security update or product quality fixes after June 30, 2019, as the support window of it has expired.
Developers and merchants must implement and test the new security patch in their development environment first to ensure that they work as expected before deploying them to the production site.
