Magento released a PHP patch for Community and Commerce. This release allows Magento 1 to remain compatible with PHP 7.2 and will provide Magento 1 users the ability to extend their use past the end of life of PHP 5.6 & 7.0 in December. The PHP 7.2 patch was released as PHP 5.6 and 7.0 will no longer be receiving security updates after December.

On September 18, Magento also released important updates and a security patch for Magento 1. This previous release provides support and maintenance for Magento 1 websites that have not yet upgraded to Magento 2. Magento 1 will receive software and security maintenance until June 2020 according to Magento’s technical information page.

If you have any questions, please let us know. Also, make sure to test thoroughly before updating your production sites as extensions or custom code might require additional modifications. This patch may also require previous security patches to be applied prior to installation based on your current version of Magento:
