The ongoing work on security for PrestaShop software continues. We have identified and fixed new minor security issues and since we don’t expect PrestaShop final to be released before a few weeks, it has been decided to deliver a new maintenance release for 1.7.6.X branch. is available!

Similarly to, this maintenance release fixes not only regressions found on versions to, but also a few security issues from 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 versions. This is again a result of the huge work on security going on in 2020 to make PrestaShop software safer. PrestaShop will continue focusing more and more on security to ensure that no security breaches, even minor ones such as permission issues, are left out in the core.

As this patch fixes several security issues, we highly recommend to upgrade your shop as soon as possible. Of course, as always, don’t forget to backup before.

Reminder: the 1-Click Upgrade module’s latest version is v4.10.1, don’t forget to upgrade it.

Notable change

In order to correctly handle user session expiration, two new SQL tables have been added to PrestaShop MySQL schema: ps_customer_session and ps_employee_session. These SQL tables are used for security purposes.

Breaking or risky changes

Dashboard modules can no longer use AdminDashboardController::ajaxProcessSaveDashConfig() to save values. This is not possible anymore in PrestaShop in order to enforce the shop’s security.

A bug fix included in required changing a CSS selector in the Front Office’s product page and rendering it more specific. However, this new selector did not work with some third party themes which were based on Classic. In, a new generic selector has been added: .product-container. If you are a theme developer, make sure to add this class to the appropriate container on your product page in order to allow your product page to be refreshed on changes.
