The Security Scan Tool is an important part of Adobe's strategy to help Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source merchants monitor their storefronts for malware, security risks, and unauthorized access. With over 21,000 threat signatures to check against and 550 new signatures added monthly, the free Security Scan Tool enables merchants to get real-time insights into the security status of their stores by identifying:

  • Potential malware and vulnerabilities on the web store

  • Out-of-date security patches

  • Potentially vulnerable extensions

  • Digital skimming injections

  • Security misconfigurations

In a recent survey conducted conducted by Adobe among merchants using the tool, over 75% of respondents say they have made changes to their storefronts based on issues identified by the Security Scan Tool. 

With the latest update, Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source customers can now configure the Security Scan Tool to detect security risks and malware on PWA Studio powered storefronts like Digital skimming injections and Botnet suspect alerts.
