Adobe Commerce 2.4.3 is now available to the entire commerce community, ending the pre-release period. Highlights of Adobe Commerce 2.4.3 include:

Substantial security enhancements

This release includes 33 security fixes and platform security improvements. Many of these security fixes have been backported to Magento 2.4.2-p2 and Magento 2.3.7-p1.

Additional security enhancements

  • A new Composer plugin helps prevent dependency confusion and identifies malicious packages with the same names as internal packages on the public package repository. 
  • Rate limiting is now built into Magento APIs to prevent denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, web APIs imposing restrictions on the size or number of resources.
  • ReCAPTCHA coverage has been extended to include: Web APIs that have corresponding HTML pages protecting endpoints from spam attacks; ReCAPTCHA protection for The Place Order storefront page and payment-related web APIs to protect stores from carding attacks.

Decreased indexation time

Decreased indexation time for Product Price and Catalog Rule indexers, allowing merchants to now exclude a website from a customer group or shared catalog, which reduces the number of records for indexing. 

Live Search

Live Search combines Adobe Sensei AI with ecommerce data to provide a more intuitive and relevant search experience for ecommerce browsers, by performing a deep analysis of aggregated visitor data. Back-end search management is also simplified with less input and management required by merchants. 

GraphQL

GraphQL support is now included for the following features:

  • Shared catalogs
  • Wish lists
  • Gift registries
  • Negotiable quotes
  • Shared routes

See the GraphQL Developer Guide for details on these enhancements.
